          let’s consider an example. in the united states people have been__8__with the increasing amount of crime for several years. the extent of crime bothers us because we ourselves could be victims. but it__9__bothers us that people behave in such ways. why can such things happen? we develop quasi-theories. we__10__concerned about the high crime rate, but we now believe we__11__it: our criminal justice system is__12 ; people have grown selfish and inconsiderate as our moral values weaken__13__the influence of liberal ideas; too many people are on drugs.

          these explanations suggest possible solutions ——__14__the courts and put more people in jail as examples to other law breakers. there is now hope__15__the problem of crime can be solved if only we__16__these solutions. again, the world is no longer meaningless nor__17__so threatening.
