FEAR OF SPEAKING OUT

Most people prefer to believe their leaders
are just and fair even in the face of evidence
to the contrary, because once a citizen
acknowledges that the government under
which they live is lying and corrupt, the
citizen has to choose what
he or she will do about it. To take action in
the face of a corrupt government entails risks
of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to
do nothing is to surrender ones self-image of
standing for principles. Most people do not
have the courage to face that choice. Hence,
most propaganda is not designed to fool the
critical thinker but only to give moral
cowards an excuse not to think at all.
