The Politics of Fear


For reasons which are unreasonable considering that I'm in the midst of a work crisis, my thoughts shifted to the French and Bolshevik revolutions and the politics of this country which is dominated by one party. Then I thought I shouldnt drink too much as my mental faculties are on sick leave.

Behind this randomness, I've discovered I've been manipulated by fear. Politically, socially and spiritually, the basic tenet of human behaviour is driven by fear. But is fear bad? In some context, fear is a virtue. Fear God for he is the Almighty and fear the powerful forces of nature. Its also fear that stop us from coveting our neighbours' spouses.

While we allow these sort of fears to heighten our appreciation of life, its also fear that incapacitate us, casting a shadow over our ability to trust our instints to survive and flourish. Browsing over some Macchiavelli articles, this culture of fear is embedded in politics, media and religion.

I suppose the answer to our fear must lie in the opposite definition of fear. Courage is more exhilarating than fear apparently.

I totally agree... that 'courage' is so much more exhilarating than fear.

Case in point: Risked being caught en flagrante delicto with my main squeeze in the tub of a gorgeous spa somewhere in Geekville (read: Cyberjaya... who woulda thunk?), in a 1st floor room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and an UNLOCKABLE door.

Exhilarating indeed. Bwahahaha (Courage? LOL I'm more inclined to call it audacity. :P)

BTW, I would be the FIRST to agree with the caption on that pic you have up for this post. A big dick certainly is NOT everything. ;)

I didnt realize there were sexual undertones ferrying this post.

princessbonkers, thought you called me a poofter. :P

shameless chica, so you have secondary 'squeezes'. I agree a seven can do a job of a nine, although a ten-er is preferable.

comic gurl, ok if only they are photos you took.

why-landa, i dont think a well hung horse looks good with big titties.

I fear being mullered by a horse.

Secondary squeezes? Chaihh... 'only squeeze' doesn't sound quite as right as 'main squeeze'. 10? Aiyo.. I believe the appropriate Malay word here is ngilu. :-P
