I'm of course reminded of Adam Curtis' "The Power of Nightmares" included in the Wholphin series 2-4. It too explains the nature of putting a face on our fears and how that has become a key manipulation for both government and religious institutions. I see this is even smaller facets of our society everyday. We raise our children to fear what we fear. My daughter is scared of a hockey mask..once a symbol of sport..now another face of fear. We need to be always aware and conscious of how we sub-consciously see things as not what they truly are but what we fear they may be. The wizards first rule. People are stupid..People can be made to believe any lie because they want to believe it is true, or because they are afraid that it is true.

It reminded me of this episode of The Twilight Zone called The Monsters Are Due On Maple St. I really hope we can break this cycle.

No flame from me, for I agree. Humanity wouldn't experience all the problems it does today if they were to take these words to heart and do these things, but this just isn't human nature. Sadly, many humans have sacrificed themselves to the 'god of this world', worshipping the creature, rather than the Creator. The 'creature', by the way, is the 'beast', the 'carnal spirit', the 'devil incarnate'.
