“The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself” – Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1st Inaugural address. March 4th 1933
You do realize, of course, that we’re possibly, probably maybe even really going to be attacked by T E R R O R I S T S again within the next six minutes.
Or maybe within the next year.
DEFINITELY within the next ten years.
Special super duper accurate reports and studies confirm this. So get ready, be prepared, and above all be afraid. The media tells us so. every day. So it must be true!
Did you also know that those dishtowels you use on a daily basis may be disease laden monsters, lurking in your kitchen, just waiting to strike to kill? It’s true! Reports say so! The TODAY show can and will fill you in daily on every hidden fear and terror and cancer lurking under your fingernails, in your hair, under your bed, and in the curtains. And they’ll do it with their bright, chipper, sunny and insidiously sinister stepford smiles when they do.
But they’re not the only ones who will.
The culture of fear has become so pervasive in American life that we jump at the sight of our own shadows. We’ve been conditioned to. By the Media, by the government.
Why? Simple answer. Control.
Suggestion and conditioning techniques are far easier to apply when fear is present. Fear-addled people are much more malleable and able to be controlled. It’s been done all throughout history, but never so thoroughly or effectively as now.
A quick look at history proves it.
Hitler and Co used it. They used the many fears the German people were feeling post WWI about being subjugated by the allied powers, economic collapse, immorality, etc. The result was a second world war and the deaths of millions of innocent Jews and others because they provided an excellent focus and intensifier for the fear mongering of Hitler’s regime.
Religion is all about fear. Fear of God, fear of punishment, fear of self. Fear of knowledge. They’ve used it skillfully for centuries, and controlled whole populations with it. They still do.
Today, however, the method of choice and expedition of fear mongering has been perfected through television. It’s goals have broadened, too. No longer is the sole object control of the masses, but also influence of the masses.The pharmaceutical companies have sure learned that lately. How often are we bombarded with symptoms on television? Did you ever realize that you were so fucked up? that you needed pills to wake up , pills to sleep, pills to keep from depression, pills to piss regularly, pills to raise your cock and more pills to lower it. Pills, Pills, Pills. Jesus Christ on a pogo stick! Just give me a goddamned aspirin and leave me the hell alone!
But I digress.
How about the Government. Thank God that the Bush administration is far too honest and above board to use such techniques.
They’re the most ruthless of all.
When all is hunky-dory and we’re in no danger of fear (which so far has been …umm…never)
TERROR LEVEL PUCE
When Bush fucks up?
TERROR LEVEL YELLOW
When Bush or his flying monkeys REALLY fuck up?
TERROR LEVEL ORANGE
And when we finally pull our collective heads out of our asses and force congress to impeach the asshole?
TERROR LEVEL RED
They’re so transparent. This whole occupation was built on the manipulation of fear. They’re good at that one thing, I’ll give them that. Of course it helps to have millions of morons who believe everything they’re told, who have no ability whatsoever to analyse anything logically or to reason or to think at all.
ok, end of rant! It must be the antibiotics.
