The link between emotionality and rationality seems to develop early in life via mother–infant attachment: ‘securely attached children have greater socialemotional or social-cognitive skills – empathy being the most valuable’. Thus we have evolved to give emotional priority to the practical solutions of those problems that we perceive as being more immediately threatening, than to those that pose a less-immediate threat to our fitness. Remarkably, this evolved feature can be easily manipulated in the public sphere by defining a problem as either urgent or distant, in a quest to push public opinion in one direction or another.
