Panic as Political Motivation

I am amazed watching right-wing extremists solving political problems.

It seems to me, it all starts with some kind of invented panic.

(I call it the “Ragnarök-on-Thursday-mentality… you know, next week: race wars and mass rapes… get a gun, this week!)

Once the perception that “the house is burning down” has taken root, any and all measures seem logical and legitimate.

After all, we’re in a panic. Catastrophe has struck. It’s the end of the world as we know it!

And the world has been ending this way at least since the 30ies…

I wonder if there’s a pill for that. A diagnose? A letter combination?
