[QUOTE="Aljosa23"]I never said it was I said it seems like it. From all the news reports and media trying to stir up fear to Alex Jones saying guns are needed to protect from the tyranny of the government and so on.
You're not going to get an objective view of any subject if all you know of it is what the media portrays. As someone else just said, it's preparedness, not fear. Although there certainly are some who do it out of fear, and they're doing it wrong.Why do they feel the need to be prepared? People prepare out of fear of the uncertain and fear has always been the emotion to drive preparedness. Fear isn't a bad thing as being prepared isn't bad but to say fear is not an aspect of this is a clear misunderstanding of motive. " People prepare out of fear of the uncertain"
Some do, but most don't.
When you put on your seatbelt, do you do it out of fear of the uncertain, or because you want to be prepared in the case of an accident? When you use sunscreen, do you do it out o fear of the uncertain, or because you want to be prepared to be in the sun for a while? When you buy groceries, do you do so out of fear of the uncertain, or because you want to be prepared to feed yourself?
You're a pretty sad individual if every prepatory step you take is due to fear. Maybe you need to see a counselor, living a life of fear is not healthy.
