A Few Words In Defense of Our Country

A president once said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself” 

Now it seems like we’re supposed to be afraid. It’s patriotic in fact and color coded. 

And what are we supposed to be afraid of? Why, of being afraid. That’s what terror means, doesn’t it?

That’s what it used to mean.
