Instilling Fear as Means of Control
on November 5, 2003
It's another sick attempt to reap personal benefits by publishing a book, which contributes to the mad culture of fear, permeating American society of today. The author never mentions what are the chances, or what they've ever been, for an average American to die from an act of terror, in comparison to the chances of dying from other unnatural causes, such as domestic crime, automobile accidents, etc. Just today I've read that the authoritative JAMA claims about 250,000 Americans die every year as a result of medical malpractice. This means, about 600,000 died since 9-11-01, and how many books do we have on how to protect ourselves from bad doctors, poor hospital care, wrong medications, etc.?
I wonder, the American people gave up their Bill of Rights without any hesitation in an eyeblink, in exchange for some very vague, poorly defined promises of protection against the one hundred something cause of death. What would they give up for a promise to protect them, say from the number 25, or number 10 cause of death?
Keep studying garbage like this, great America! Stock up with gas masks, utility tapes, food, buy extra homes, the Enemy is sneeking up to your doorstep, while your Big Brother is watching you and getting even better deal than an eye for an eye overseas. This surely is making the world a safer place, America more loveable and may even extend your earthly existence by a few more cosmic miliseconds. Although that's highly unlikely, if you can think...
