Playing with ngrams

the past vs. the future-- Something is going on here, but I don't know what.

hope vs. fear-- Possibly evidence of a cliche, but I wonder why there was so much more hope (or possibly "hope) from 1550 to 1650.

crisis (overview)-- looks as though people are getting steadily more worried. Did things become more drastic or was it just a change in word choice?

crisis (focusing in)-- Looks like something big happened around 1648, but I don't know what-- and it seems to be during the hope period.

the obesity crisis-- maybe it's peaked. Anyone have info on the arc taken by moral panics?

I would rather have inserted the graphs, but they either didn't show up, or only the link appeared.
