My approach is to trust in the truth and shout it to world. So what if a cop is at a peace event? Maybe it will rub off on him, and he'll wake up. But what can he do? Report that you were at a peace rally and oppose the war? Did you want to keep that a secret? Let them tap my phone -- I'll give them an earful to think about! What worries me more is letting my skepticism lapse and swallow propaganda unchewed, or letting my own conditioning and bias go unexamined. We have to remember that "fear is the mind-killer" and is one of the weapons used by fascists, with the hope it will discourage people. Wasn't there some fellow who said "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"? Catchy phrase -- I wonder if anyone has heard of him? <G> The worst they can do is imprison or kill me (I'd be no worse off than the Iraqis), and if I fearfully hide in the shadows, I might as well be dead already. I refuse to accept *their* fear. ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand! Surf the web up to FIVE TIMES FASTER!
