When Fear-Mongering Fails!


 -- Published: Friday, 24 June 2016 | Print  | Disqus 

By: Chris Rossini

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. 


The propaganda used to get British citizens to stay in the European Union was astounding. It was around-the-clock and relentless. Even here in America, politicians and their subservient media were walking lockstep with each other in telling us why Britain should stick with the political elite's plan for the massive centralization of power.

The concentration of power is a great enemy of liberty.

Political power (if it exists) should be as decentralized as possible. The further away the power center from the individual, the harder it is to change it. If the centralization of power reaches a global scale, it becomes impossible to change. 


Naturally, those who have a lust for power also have a lust for global government. Britain's vote threw a major monkey wrench into the scheme.

It's yet to be seen if Britain ends up being merely the first domino to fall. Will others follow and cascade away from elitist "globalism"?

We can only hope.

But for now, a victory over propaganda and constant fear-mongering should be celebrated with cheers!
