Faith aside you have to look at the fact that fear is being perpetuated on a daily basis. It's all a matter of being educated as to what is being done. If you are not buying into any fear mongering tactics then good for you. You are one of a few. I am not arguing with faith at all but that too can be used as a tool to generate fear.

We are going through a Federal election right now in Canada, and you can clearly see the use of "fear" as a tool. Its rather pathetic and sad that we have such a lack of intellectual debate and deep discussion.
Instead, we are told if the Conservatives get in power abortions will be banned, widows will be tossed into the street, and their is a "hidden agenda." If the Socialist get in power, we will go bankrupt over night and be led to ruin.
Prior to this election the Liberals even had an add on their website that we would have armed guards and a police state if the Conservatives got in power!
Sadly, this seems to be an effective way of influencing people who are too stupid to do any independent research.
