That´s how media and society works sadly. 

Having a "bogeyman" allows people to feel meaning in life, simply by conforming to some authority. If you watch some of the advertisement the German government put out in order to make people follow the narrative it´s super obvious.

They basically told people "you can be a hero by eating chips, playing video games and staying home..."

I mean, if people weren't so worried about the near future we would have went extinct a very long time ago. Survival isn't a joke, none of us would be here if our ancestors weren't concerned about eating or keeping warm. Humans will still think the world will end in their lifetimes when we're colonizing the galaxy. It's in our nature to worry about the future.

I wouldn't worry about it too much.

With such black/white and simplified thinking it's no surprise you have been fooled that many times. Maybe you can learn to look for more nuance in your positions so you don't have to flip flop from one extreme to the other.

Every perspective has at least a piece of the truth in it.

No one is capable of being 100% wrong.
