31. That is the truth.
And your words make the hair on my head stand up.

Manufactured fear is what was used as a political tool to lull the American people into accepting this neocon new reality. Protesting fake fear is what I was arrested for in 2004*, and I plead guilty as charged to interfering with the official act of politicizing fear.

Now that the time has come for REAL fear - the kind that makes citizens wake up, stand together, and work together to prevent the unthinkable. So why is there such inertia?

Have we been programmed to ignore all the warning signs, to ignore the escalations because we've heard it all so many times before and it wasn't true?
