Fear mongering is a very skillful, effective, contagious, mind-controlling tool used from politicians to the common salesperson to sell agendas, wars and even very small, common household products “we fear” we need.
This forum is a miniscual microcosm of our human condition of which susceptibility to suggestion, innuendo, subliminal messaging laced with fear/pain can be (in some cases) overkill, destructive and a disservice to this forums good membership.
The tirades, the massive mood swings are handily used by many, of which the media is notorious for and we (the targets) fall in lockstep out of years and years of conditioned mind controlling fear. There is no need to ride their coat tales, as designed. They’ll keep popping up regularly, least we forget there is a newspaper to sell.
“Awareness” born out of stepping back, far enough away and gazing (without the incessant mind chatter) with as much clarity as we can realize, this, in and of itself can, and is extremely powerful and more important liberating.
Liberating from what? From the confines and restraints mind generated fears are designed to keep one from perhaps finding a little piece of well-needed “peace” and confidence in their lives.
In the two or so years I’ve been on this forum, it’s not hard to realize we’re good folks. Perhaps not as perfect as Bubba, a few others and me who sachet shamelessly but heck and hey, aren’t we all some kind of rock star in our own fashion …………
