Cultural Conditioning & Status Quo Dictate Our Concerns, Morals & Beliefs?

Ever consider how most people are perfectly content launching themselves at upwards of 70mph down the highway, essentially almost dying every day of their lives, or have committed to a suicidal lifestyle of smoking cigarettes, yet are simultaneously frightened by trivialities like insects, being disagreed with, talking to strangers, etc, simply because they have less exposure with these things?

It never ceases to amaze me, as well as frighten me, how conditioning and the prevailing status quo have a way of dictating our concerns, morals, and beliefs, regardless of how completely irrational and misconstrued they might actually be.
