Fear is the go-to emotion that government preys upon. It’s so reliable. The fear of the unknown causes most individuals to give away and sacrifice every liberty that they were naturally born with. A population that is perpetually afraid ultimately ends up fearing liberty itself!
Government’s sales pitch is that you need them. It is they who will protect you from a never-ending carousel of fears.
Off course that’s not even remotely true, but truth is not necessary for an aggrandizement of power to take place. Just look at the TSA for example. It has been shown over and over again to be nothing more than security theatre, yet it’s still there making American lives miserable.
Government has nothing of its own. It produces nothing. Everything that it has it must take from its victims by force. A pipeline of fear stands readily available to them with excuses to justify their theft. Fear is the currency used in the exchange of liberty for power.
Thankfully, we have just witnessed an historic moment. British citizens have voted to leave the European Union!
A gigantic lesson can be learned from this event. It proves that fear-mongering has its limits. It’s not fool-proof.
