Sorry about his but it pains me tremendously to see so many Americans cowering in fear, intolerant of any exception to the norm. I have seen too many stories today on the internet about this is so dangerous that is so dangerous, don’t take any risks no matter how small,
” Be afraid be very afraid,” because when you are always afraid you can be controlled and when fear and control are established absolutely you will have no risk but no rewards either. And in actuality if your fears should ever actually be soothed the powerful will create new ones for you, it’s happening daily and hourly as this is written. Can you remember what we were supposed to be afraid on last year? Did it disappear? Did it happen?
Politicians seem to be the best salesmen of this credo right behind TV weather and internet news and eventually if the fearmongers get their way the picture on our TV screens and computer monitors will be a perfect shade of gray in complete stasis and Orwell’s 1984 nightmare will seem like a pleasant dream.
FDR said , ” we have nothing to fear but fear itself,” certainly a wide generalization but still generally true today. as It’s hard to accomplish anything when you’re fearfully cowering in the shadows in the corner of your own little part of the world shouting fearful puerile gibberish.
