Zerocool3001's Journal: Snowball Effect

Journal by Zerocool3001
Has anyone ever noticed that so much of rights are being removed simply because of our emotions? Its a nice trick when you think about it. Use a people own thoughts and feelings to push forward an agenda you had planned all along. It makes me wonder if we really learned our lessions from McCarthyism. I think the answer is we did, but we learned the wrong lesson. The government realized that people could be enormously powerful when they felt strongly about something. Now this is an amazing tool.

Then you don't even have to convince them because they think your fighting for them.
Its a strange world we live in.

Science shall reign. Someday...
