I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over and through me. And when it has gone I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. -Frank Herbert
The solution to end all solutions is to simply live without fear. Fear has gotten us to where we are today, and fear will take us to places we never wanted to be. Fear is the reason why we didn’t ask questions following 9/11, the reason why we went into Afghanistan, and the reason why we went into Iraq believing they had WMD’s they were waiting to sell to terrorists.
Without fear we would have asked questions about 9/11. How it happened and why there was a tremendous lapse in security and judgement on that day. Without fear we would have asked how passing a law like the Patriot Act (which was passed out of fear) is supposed to help us win a war against people who want us to be afraid?
Without fear we wouldn’t care about being deemed unpatriotic, crazy, or a terrorist for speaking the ugly truth. Without fear we would take the power away from those that control things and gain power by putting fear into their minds.
There really is no other solution I am going to put forth aside from losing your fear. You will be able to think clearly and not allow things outside your control to affect the way you live your life. If you have lost your fear, do your best to assure others lose their fears as well. I will not put forth solutions other than that because quite frankly I think we should lead ourselves out of the quagmire we find outrselves in and not look for individuals to lead us out of this mess.
