I think I know what you mean. The nagging feeling that we’re all doomed? This is all going wrong? The police did what now!? Doesn’t anybody care anymore? “New and improved” my a**, who buys such a cr**!? Are people getting just plain stupid? What, yet another reality show?
Nah. That’s not a phobia.
Hmm, fear of the future is close, but I don’t think that’s quite it.
Not the fear of, say, how your life will be when you’re getting old (or have an accident) and you have to move into a nursing home. — The fear to see today’s people, to see how their children get raised, and to know that those kids will care for you when you’re old. — And you don’t just feel sorry for yourself. Even more you feel sorry for those kids, because you know that they will only have their kids, and so on. You see those kids, the political atmosphere in which they grow up, their education, their fitness, their skills, their sorry excuse for a future. And you know that you can’t… change… a thing… about it? That kind of anxiety, right?
