If Everybody is Afraid of Something...

If Everybody is Afraid of Something...
...then why don't they believe in conspiracies?

- journalists

- politicians

- citizens

Is the source of their fears that powerful?

Is it likely to harm them in any serious way?

Then why are so many people afraid?

Everybody believes in conspiracy.

When it comes to 9/11, either Al Qaeda did it, or others did. Either way, it was a conspiracy.

Ask a sleeper if he/she believes in 9/11. They'll most likely ask what you mean. Ask them if they believe that 9/11 happened. They will say of course it happened. Tell them that of course they believe in conspiracy.

I could go on, but you get the idea.

Fears - real and imagined

Fear of being shunned by friends, family
Fear of confrontation or rocking the boat
Fear of tagged as a dissenter by enforcement and potential prosecution
Fear of losing a job or friends or blackballed for future financial opportunities
Fear of losing status or future promotion when towing the 'company' line
Fear of being perceived as a conspiracy theorist or a nutter
Fear of being labelled unpatriotic
Fear of losing contacts and sources for broadcasters
Fear of losing financial support by the politicians
Fear of death (see JFK, MLK etc..) for speaking your mind about what you believe is true
Fear of harm to you or loved ones
Fear of harm to business relations by you or your company
Fear of losing their painted reality and asking the tough questions for fear of getting an answer that impacts or potentially shatters their core belief system

So they keep their heads down, keep tight lipped, convince their own denial, drink a lot or maybe they are just arrogantly playing along with the charade well aware that their silence (or lies) is helping (maybe they feel it is justified in some way) perpetrate the official fiction.
There are no others, there is only us.

in the world of jounalism the loss of job is a huge factor. if you actauly say what you think then they cant "trust" you. You are paid to be on message. they say what they are paid to say. speech is free but news is a business.

Fear leads to hate, and hate to the dark side .... had to quote master YODA lol

everyone is afraid of something, and discovering that fear gives the discoverer power, but fear is only a survival emotion, ingraned deep in the sub-concious... it can be conquored like other emotions vistages from us being animals...
unless it will kill you the rest is incidental

to quote another "you have nothing to fear but fear it's self"

but that doesn't mean we should not be aware and cautious, and the only difference between caution and paranoia is the interpurtation.
Remember Knowledge is the only thing THEY can't take from you, and Knowledge is Know how, and Know how is Power!!!

Live long and Prosper!!!! Have a plan beyond words, and worry not of why the storm is coming as to how you're going to survive in it!!!!
