Fear

“If leaders exploit public fears to herd people in directions they might not otherwise choose, then fear itself can quickly become a self-perpetuating and freewheeling force that drains national will and weakens national character, diverting attention from real threats deserving of healthy and appropriate fear and sowing confusion about the essential choices the every nation must constantly make about is future.”

-Al Gore
from The Assault on Reason

    That’s really brilliant and one of the quotes that makes me admire Al Gore.

    I hate to admit it, but I haven’t read that book yet. It’s at the top of my list.

    Great quote and kudos for posting it. It’s food for thought.
