"A SOCIETY AFRAID IS A SOCIETY DEBILITATED AND READY TO BE CORRALLED."
By Del Albright
Take the bit in your mouth and head for the barn -- if you are afraid, you are easily controlled and corralled in the barn. Fear is the most powerful control factor in our modern day lives. If you are corralled, you are not roaming free or enjoying the green grass on the other side of the fence. You are boxed in; contained; controlled; and manipulated in how you live your life. Be not confused.
In the most extreme example, terrorism is just fear incarnate. Bullies use fear. Terrorists use fear. If you are afraid, you are ripe for manipulation, control and allowing someone else dictate how you spend your days. FORGET THAT!
Yes, be safe. Take care of yourself. Be smart. But be NOT afraid at the level where someone else is controlling your life. Do not let fear dictate how you choose (and allow) actions in your life.
If fear continues to take over our society, we will end up (theoretically) in a cattle car rumbling numbly to the slaughter house. Please do not let fear slaughter your dreams and freedom.
