The great prophets were described as madmen.
Fear, fear, fear. Seems it is all fear.
Of what use is fear? If you identify threat clearly then it is useful, but in my experience in more general things, it doesn’t do that. It helps the powers that be keep us compliant. Fear as doctrine. It is maybe why they want to give autistics electro convulsive therapy.
Fear…storm …fear…economy… fear…money… fear…car crash. Fear of car crash causes car crash. Fear of failure causes failure. Fear of loss of money causes stasis, if not loss of money. In the long run, still causing loss of money. We should rank everything we hear on a 1-10 scale of, “How much fear did they just try to give me?”
Fear isn’t wisdom. Fear is just fear. Then people label it as ‘common sense’ or ‘prudent.’ If a venture is obviously shaky then abstaining is prudent, not the fear of it. What you see is what you get. See deeply and get more. Fear doesn’t use facts. If you know a dog will bite you, are you really afraid of the dog? Or do you just decide to stay away from it, because you know it will bite you? I don’t fear animals, not snakes, not dogs, they behave like they behave. If I fear anything I fear humans. They behave from fear and then die anyway. Soldiers don’t die from fighting. If they excel in their training, they are much less likely to die at all. They die from fear. Sun-Tzu said this.
