    We should be listen less to fearmongers like Nixon/Cheney et al. and more to people who say things like this:

    “Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them.
    Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.
    Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield, but to my own strength.
    Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved, but hope for patience to win my freedom.”
    – Rabindranath Tagore

    “Let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”
    F.D.R.

    This video was on the BBC 4 program Newswipe, and every week they have a great video like this. Some people may of seen the video about generic news reports, which is on the same show. It is very funny, but they do also contain informative videos pertaining to politics and/or journalism, and it’s well worth watching. Thank-you disinfo for helping the show get some limelight.
