Truth - Dogma - Politics & Misrepresentations

Fear is a vital response to physical and emotional danger that has been pivotal throughout evolution. If people didn’t feel fear, they wouldn’t be able to protect themselves from legitimate threats—which often had life-or-death consequences in the ancestral world.

In the modern world, the stakes seem lower. Still, some individuals still develop extreme fight-flight-or-freeze responses to specific real or imagined objects or scenarios. Fear results from persistent perceptions of threats and impairs one’s life or growth, a phobia.

· Societal FEAR is the product of the Destruction of Truth - Dogma - Politics & Misrepresentations!

· Truth: Conformity to fact or reality;

· Dogma: a fixed, especially religious, belief or set of beliefs that people are expected to accept without any doubts;

· Politics: the activities of the government or people who try to influence the way a country is governed:

· Misrepresentation: statement that falsely describes an idea, opinion, fact or situation, to get an advantage over Truth bearing little resemblance to actual events.

FEAR is the driving force behind the powerful and powerless to keep, expand, or gain dominance over individuals or societies. Fear instilled by governments is dangerous. Fear leads to encroachment on individual Liberty and Self-determination.

Historically, the Church, Government, the Supreme Court acted as the authoritative interpreter of Truth. Though there is one Scripture and one Constitution, Misrepresentations and Politics have separated Truth and Dogma into many parts.

Society is experiencing a national pandemic phobia; a distinct fear from consistent news and predictions to provoke fear, distress, and the sufferer endures it with discomfort or avoids it entirely. Fear is disproportionate to the true danger the object or event poses. It manifests with self-doubt and letting outside factors to dominate internal emotions.

How you handle FEAR will determine the nation’s future.

We are not in this together, we are not a village. We are sovereign individuals who work, suffer, succeed, and die on our own merits, accomplishments and misdeeds. Society is the product of individual response to Truth - Dogma - Politics & Misrepresentations.

Looking at a rural state, as of October 2, 2020, Kansas reports 352 hospitalizations (cumulative report/0.00011733333) with State's hospital bed capacity of 9,659. Total hospitalizations (all causes 271,329/.00129%).

This is not to suggest pandemics are not real, nor dangerous. It is to suggest FEAR is the enemy and legitimate threats are being replaced with potential threats. Most people who get COVID-19, the disease caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2, will have only mild illness. But what exactly does that mean?

Mild COVID-19 cases still can make you feel lousy. But you should be able to rest at home and recover fully without a trip to the hospital. Scientists and researchers are constantly tracking infections and recoveries. But they have data only on confirmed cases, so they can’t count people who don’t get COVID-19 tests. Experts also don’t have information about the outcome of every infection. However, early estimates predict that the overall COVID-19 recovery rate is between 97% and 99.75%. (www.webmd.com)

The Road goes ever on and on; Out from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, Let others follow it who can! Let them a journey new begin, But I at last with weary feet Will turn towards the lighted inn, My evening-rest and sleep to meet. (The Return of the King, Book VI, Chapter 6)
