Not good. When you are hesitant to walk down the streets at night say after 9pm/dark or you don't see women jogging at night....See it's interesting when you see it through that lens. How would you say the US or certain parts of Europe fare in comparison to Qatar or the Emirates with the 'basic needs' core of the pyramid?
Or even sending your kids to school, worried about mass shooters.
Political discussions or proclamations of freedom/liberty etc are just that ... political when the reality is that there are millions of homeless, opioid addicts struggling etc that are addressed. The approach is always to deflect onto others -- wars.
Or even the war on drugs. Attack the suppliers when you aren't solving the demand issue at home. So there is a tendency to blame others especially foreign countries first than to look within yourself and actually solve the issues domestically ie deflection.
