“We Have Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself”
Franklin Roosevelt said that, and no truer words were ever spoken. Government controls people through fear, in order to convince them to give up their money and freedom.
Here are a few examples:
I have a friend who lives in a very safe neighborhood in California. Despite the fact that the chances of her being shot are about as large as being struck by lightning, she is campaigning hard to get guns banned. If she were successful, the crime rate in her neighborhood would undoubtedly skyrocket, and then she would actually have something to fear. The reason her neighborhood is safe, is because the large numbers of criminals and gang members in the Bay Area know that many homeowners are armed. She fears the very thing which keeps her safe, and wants it destroyed.
Environmentalists are terrified of a harmless trace gas, and have instead bought off on destructive technologies like wind energy. Their thought process is completely irrational, and driven by fear – instilled in them by the government
Barack Obama governs almost entirely by fear mongering. There are more uninsured now than when he was elected, but he managed to convince Democrats to give away their money to his insurance industry buddies – through fear.
The US government has almost unlimited resources to generate fear through propaganda, and Americans need to decide if they are strong enough to not be destroyed by the destructive forces currently in power.
