I found this gem in a report about lamprey eels in the Great Lakes:
"The broad goal is to understand how this animal makes decisions," said Michael Wagner, a fish ecologist at Michigan State University. "Then, we want to use that understanding to guide lampreys’ movements by manipulating the landscape of fear and opportunity."

Isn't that exactly what the powers that be are doing to humans - controlling and guiding us by "manipulating the landscape of fear and opportunity"?
