Is social mood and its characteristics, like protests, about to move faster toward the negative?

Homelessness, food stamps, unemployment, protectionism, populism, defaults, bankruptcy, loans, debt, foreclosures, discounts, coupons, austerity, protests, riots, wars, world wars, pollution, global warming, climate change, terrorism, the stock market… these are all issues which during good times and bad times have an effect on social mood.

Based on looking at Internet search queries to measure current social mood, some of the trends show (see charts below) social mood is moving towards an ever increasing negative direction.
