Fear

leave a comment »

Well, us humans are destined for a long future, aren’t we? I wonder when the constant fear will set in among us, fed by the gory, coordinated explosions that will engulf marketplaces and clubs in Europe (and, eventually, in the United States) for years to come.

Hardly two days after the British police find two BMWs packed with gas canisters, nails and explosives, Scotland faces its own seemingly random act of violence. I know it is rash to decide outright that these were all directly inspired or even planned by Al Qaeda. But Al Qaeda can benefit from any terrorist attack abroad, because these attacks are the seeds of fear. And terrorism is all for instilling fear and fomenting instability among the living.

Keep your head down–there’s a long road ahead.
