    Crappy article, but the premise is correct. We're a nation of frightened little puzzies. We jump at the first sign of anything being out of mainstream culture.

    Paranoia strikes deep
    Into your life it will creep
    It starts when you're always afraid
    You step out of line, the man come and take you away.

    When I tell these people that they will die of old age without ever seeing a terrorist, they think I am insane.

    To This A$s Hole I Say,
    Millions of us sat in our living rooms and watched 3000 human beings die in two hours at the hands of those smelly filthy terrorist mother f-ckers, I do hope I die of old age without ever seeing another one of the scumsucking pig dogs again.

    I find the fear of incarcerating the Gitmo guys laughable. What are they going to do transmutate and slide under the door of their cells like the bad terminater in T2? Why do tens of millions of people here think any of these guys can somehow get out of the supermax in Florance Co. They're buried 10 stories under ground. Are they going to dig they're way out? Its total nonsense.
    I guess thats what 5-6 year "terror level orange" or yellow or red will do the the average citizen. BTW has anyone noticed that these terror warnings no longer run across the bottom of the T.V. screen when watching CNN or Faux news?

    Too short for such a big subject. It failed to get to the root of the problem, which is, well...I don't know. I want someone to figure out where this all comes from. I hate the possibility that it might just be some Orwellian program the corporate government is using to make us frightened and paranoid. We weren't always like this. Was it nukes in the 50's? The shock of the barbarism of WWII? Are we just stupid and lazy?

    I know, when did fear really start to rule? It was well before 9/11, I mean the Cuban Missle Crisis had to be one of the most fearful times for people. Somehow all that morphed into parents being wary of letting their kids trick-or-treat, fingerprinting kids just in case they get kidnapped, being afraid of neighbors who look or sound different than you,being afraid of a vaccine lest it harm you for life; the list just goes on and on.

    People stopped thinking for themselves and now of course people are even a little afraid of speaking their minds, expressing an opinion that might go against the grain. It's so sad imo. People really are ruled by fear of one kind or another. Fear is so stifling too.

    I'm most afraid of what seems like the disappearance of decency and humanity.
