We all know the story of Chicken little. The sky is falling. We have all lived it in fact, through the news and the constant need to fan the flames of fear. The sky is always falling.
And yet most people still buy into the fear that mainstream media creates to sell their goods.
The latest of course is Global warming. Whether it is man made or cyclicle, they put their usual fear slant on it. Just like after 911. That one was gold to politicians and fear-mongers. Got alot of mileage out of that one.
Sars, bird flu, war on terror.
When are people going to grow up and read between the lines? A healthy dose of fear is good. But don't buy into it lock stock and barrel. They have a vested interest in keeping you scared remember.
And of course religions have always used these things to their advantage too. They twist facts as well as anyone and like anyone, have their own agenda.
Since we began walking erect, there have always been times of great fear where people thought that the world would end. The sky is falling. And we do what we always have done, we get over it and move on. But we never seem to see the pattern and STOP this nonsense.
