Fear Not

Fear Not

“In the wake of 9/11, the Bush administration adopted fear-mongering as a political strategy. Instead of treating the attack as what it was - an atrocity committed by a fundamentally weak, though ruthless adversary - the administration portrayed America as a nation under threat from every direction. Most Americans have now regained their balance. But the Republican base, which lapped up the administration's rhetoric about the axis of evil and the war on terror, remains infected by the fear the Bushies stirred up - perhaps because fear of terrorists maps so easily into the base's older fears, including fear of dark-skinned people in general. And the base is looking for a candidate who shares this fear.” Fearing Fear Itself By Paul Krugman The New York Times http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/102907A.shtml

Cunning, devious people motivated by a lower consciousness figured out a long time ago, the best way to manipulate the masses is to induce in them either an irrational fear, an unfounded dread by fomenting unease, anxiety and terror or by subjecting them to experiences so horrific and harsh they constantly feared for their very safety or lives. So they subjected them to physical and/or psychological torture, abuse and attack. Their lower consciousness manifests in their abhorrent personal and collective behaviors. To create fear in the masses they manufacture bogeymen and enemies where none exist or they magnify and distort situations for their own agenda. Our kidnapped African ancestors lived in constant fear of the European captives and their agents which included the local and national governments. “The third step in the training of slaves was to awe them with a sense of their master’s enormous power. The only principle upon which slavery could be maintained, reported a group of Charlestonians, was the ‘principle of fear.’... Here than was the way to produce the perfect slave; accustom him to rigid discipline, demand from him unconditional submission, impress upon him his innate inferiority, develop in him a paralyzing fear of white men, train him to adopt the master’s code of good behavior and instill in him a sense of complete dependence. This at least was the goal.” Kenneth M Stampp, The Peculiar Institution page 146, 148
The sons and now the daughters of those who possessed a lower consciousness of fear, greed, warmongering and murder, who employed their benighted consciousness to create a culture of fear and abuse are attempting to maintain that psychological environment in today’s world. Only this time they want us to be afraid of a group of amorphous terrorists their propaganda machine calls “Islamo-fascists” This is absurd, there is no such thing. It is the figment of a NeoCon propagandists psychotic mind. Keep in mind a generation ago their fathers and their mind control apparatus told us it was the communists we were to dread. It was the godless communists over there who provided the pretext for the politicians to appropriate inordinate amounts of our tax dollars on weapons of mass destruction so we could “defend” ourselves against the communist threat of global domination. The problem with that scenario was, historically it was not the communists alone who were attempting to dominate the world. The US had assumed the mantel of the West as the dominate European imperialist power in the world.
For the last six years the Bu$h administration has used 9-11 (which as most serious thinkers and researchers know was an inside job) as their trump card and pretext to launch a series of invasions (in Afghanistan and Iraq) to steal the resources of these countries and use their strategic location as a base for a much wider imperialist agenda. Bu$h and Co have also initiated proxy wars in places like Somalia and Sudan to gain a toehold in these countries in order to steal their oil. To do this they’ve had to lie and induce massive fear in the AmeriKKKan populous, they had to make us believe we were under attack and the constant threat of future attacks. Whenever Joe and Jane Sixpack begin to clear their head and think lucidly about what is going on, the Bu$hites trot out another video or audio of Osama bin-Laden to terrorize the people; which is a neat trick since bin-Laden has been dead for several years now.
Fear is their primary major tool, they have become first class fear mongers using their buddies and cohorts in the corporate media to beat the drums for more fear and more war. Like attracts like, the lower consciousness of the ruling elites and the rewards they can bestow attracts others who vibrate on the same mental and emotional frequencies. The fearful, the greedy, the covetous, outer directed people in search for externalized wealth and power are their prey and soul mates. Once the ruling elites get them in their web, they use fear to influence and entrap them to go along with their policies, they use their fear of what people will say about them, the fear their deepest secrets and foibles will be exposed, the fear of being ostracized, fear of being cut off from the riches the elites provide or the fear of being murdered to coerce and manipulate people to do what they say.
Is the world a dangerous place? Yes if you believe it to be. The world is as you say it is, your reality is what you perceive it to be. We each have the power of discernment, cogitation and imagination with which we can create our reality. That doesn’t mean that your reality is my reality because there are as many ways to see a thing as there are people to see it. Community means we generally share the same or similar realities because our culture is based upon our common consciousness, how we deal with and within the reality we have created and share. The question becomes do you have the courage of your convictions. Do you have the will and perseverance to project and live your unique reality if it differs from George W. Bu$h’s and the NeoCon’s? Do you have the courage, fortitude and tenacity to reject the false reality propagated by CNN, Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal et al? Are you confident enough in your own powers of cogitation, perceptiveness, reasoning and intuition to stand up for yourself and assert your independence of thought and emotion?
If you acquiesce to fear mongers and warmongers like Bu$h the NeoCons the world becomes a scary place. Fear is the portal to the dark side, there a host of other negative ideation and emotions await you. That’s exactly what they want. If they make you fearful, meaning you are full of fear they have won half the battle because then they can then induce you to do anything, as we have seen throughout history. If you have a heart for peace and you are working to develop a higher consciousness, you are not fooled by the Bu$hes and Cheneys of this world. In fact you pity their psychotic state of mind and the pernicious influence they have on our fellow humans. More importantly you realize you must work to offer another view of the world not just by your rhetoric but also your example.
All is not lost. We can alter the world but first we must alter ourselves. This is a monumental undertaking, one we cannot successfully accomplish if we are burdened and weighed down with fear and uncertainty.
