I don't know why, but death by drowning has always been my biggest fear,Submitted by JohnPhillipSousa on Mon, 01/14/2013 - 10:13
Tho I've enjoyed being on and in the water my whole life, the fear is real and I've yet to shake it off. That aside, there's two ways to drown: one is from shear bad luck, and the other is from shear force with criminal intent, in which case my fear simply disappears, only to be replaced by shear anger—a powerful motivator.
I'm grateful to Jeffery Tucker for illustrating the difference in a way I could personally identify. Here is his article, The Great Robbery of Wage-Earners http://lfb.org/today/the-great-robbery-of-wage-earners/
He seems to have a unique way (imo) of putting issues in their proper perspective. Quote:
Note this for the future: What matters is not what they debate, but that what they together decide should not be discussed at all! This is the real business of government. It’s the issues that the political parties agree on that the public need fear most. This is the area in which the most deadly fleecing occurs.
