Scared to Death

“Never miss an oppertunity to take advanage of crisis”

Rahm Emanual

I don’t know about my readers, but I am sick and tired of being scared to death by our government.  Over the last 60 years our government has tried to keep the American people in a state of fear.  In the 50s it was the threat of communism taking over the world.  In the late 50s, it was the threat of nuclear war.  I remember being told to go into the hallway of our school and sit with my back against the wall with my head between my knees to protect me from the building collapsing because of a nuclear explosion.  Today we would probably call that child abuse.

We were also told that the earth was becoming so overpopulated that people would soon not have enough food to eat[1]. Again, in the 60s, we were told that communism was going to sweep the world and we would have to stop it in some obscure place called Vietnam.  That time around, the government literally scared about 55,000 of us to death in that needless war.[2]  Then in the 70s, we were told that a new Ice Age was coming and that North America would probably be engulfed by glaciers.    It’s no wonder that the young people went  a little crazy in the 60s and 70s.  Could it be that they were scared crazy by our government?

In more recent times it’s been pandemics, epidemics, and catastrophes of all kinds, none of which have come to pass.  Do you remember the computer glitch of 2000 when we were told that when the clocks changed from 1999 to the year 2000 the computers were going to fail and time would stop?  That one was a good job creator!  I had a professional friend who bought into that scary false prediction, cashed in his retirement, and lost hundreds of thousands of dollars.  By the way don’t forget those weapons of mass destruction.

Now that I’m a young old man, these jerks are still trying to scare me to death.  They’re still using the fear of communism, but that is waning because a growing number of them are communist.  Recently they used the fear of another Great Depression to get a whole lot of money from us.  Now they’re telling us that the world is heating up and going to melt if we do not give them more of our money.  On top of all of this, they are also telling me that if I get sick, I will not have access to medical care and that I might die.  They assure me if I give them more of my money they will take care of me, of course I will still die.  Well, I’m not buying it.  I’m done listening to Chicken Little telling me that the sky is falling and the world is coming to an end.  One thing about the real Chicken Little, though he went around screaming that the world was coming to an end, he never offered to save the people for a price like our government and its experts always do.  I don’t know about you, but I find all this fear mongering despicable, and I believe that there’s something that we can do about it.  We can fire them all!  “Never miss an opportunity to take advantage of a crisis”. That’s code for never miss an opportunity to scare people to death so you can get more of their money and stay in power.

A word from the Lord, “Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.” But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord.” (1 Peter 3:14-15).[3]

[1] This fear was use to promote the legalization of abortion. Resulting in the death of about 40 million infants.

[2] The democratic governments of the world seem to be usually wrong about who the real enemies are. Before World War II they were telling us that Hitler was no threat when it was obvious he was preparing for war.

[3] The fear of God removes all other fears and sets you free from fear and anxiety.
