1/22/2021: Fear is a dark cloud that over-shadows every good thing in your life. Fear is the greatest weapon of Evil and is the ultimate destroyer of peace and happiness. A threat, whether implied or in action, used as a deterrent to control one person or an entire country, is extremely effective.
Bullies frequently use threats to put other kids in fear. More timid children give in to the bully’s demands and the bully always know who to pick on. The sight of one child being attacked by a bully is usually sufficient to bring the rest of the children under control.
Leaders of countries use fear to control the population. Dissenters become enemies of the state and are imprisoned or killed. People either submit or suffer the consequences. Mind control is used to regulate what the citizens can think or express how they really feel about the government.
Parents also use fear to control their children. Many forms of punishment are used when a child misbehaves contrary to what the parent desires. The child is controlled by the sheer power that parents have over them.
Pedophiles use fear to intimidate their subjects. “Don’t share anything with anyone about what I have done or tell your parents about this”, are words used to control with implied consequences. A child that has been abused in any manner will keep quiet to protect someone they love.
Fear is also used with great effectiveness to sell a product or service. “You don’t want to be poor when you retire, do you?” is a great sales pitch used by financial advisers. “Use this wrinkle cream to keep your youthful looks,” sells many jars of product. “There’s a limited supply so get yours now!” The list goes on and on.
If you are protecting someone who has harmed you in any manner, who has placed a burden of guilt or fear on you, you are allowing evil to continue. If you don’t speak up or let the information be known to stop what is happening, it will continue, not just with you but with other people also. Please, find the courage to speak up. Evil cannot exist in the light of the truth being exposed.
