The Terrocrats - Keeping you afraid is job #1
Keeping you afraid, frankly, is good business for the Terrocrats. It offers them the ability to steal your rights, privacy and civil liberties by enacting new draconian laws that chip away at the US Constitution, whilst getting the opportunity to place new technology into play.
For example x-ray machines that scan you totally naked at US, UK and other international airports; the governments intrusive ability to search and track you and your financial affairs from cradle to grave. And the list goes and on ad nauseam, but I believe you get the point.
Just think about what they've accomplish since 9/11 with Patriot Acts I and II.
Have you ever bothered to take the time to read those horrendous anti privacy and civil liberty laws? If not you should, because they are two of the single most destructive laws ever written to diminish your civil liberties and the US Constitution.
Viet D. Dinh is a lawyer who served as the Assistant Attorney General of the United States from 2001 to 2003, under the presidency of George W. Bush. Born in Saigon, South Vietnam, he was the chief architect of the USA PATRIOT Act. IMO this man should be given an infamous award as the person most responsible for the destruction of The US Constitution and all Americans rights.
Many people do not know that the USA PATRIOT Act was already written and ready to go long before September 11th. Recent criticism of Bush's admission that he had received warnings only weeks before September 11th has made it more important to understand the origins of the USAPA.
The USA PATRIOT Act - the so-called "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001," a.k.a. the USAPA -- was enacted in the immediate wake of 9/11, riding a wave of fear that spread over the nation. This Act has caused much concern amongst civil rights advocates. The Administration, however, responded to such concerns by calling critics unpatriotic. Now, the White House has had a similar response to critics of Bush's recent admission of early warnings.

Nuclear lies are keeping you afraid, see
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/environment/article5733427.ece is an interesting article from earlier last year, and puts another perspective on keeping you afraid.
Throughout history, governments have used events and fear as a very effective tool to control the thinking and doings of the masses, whilst enacting laws to their own benefit.
The Reichstag fire was an arson attack on the Reichstag building in Berlin on 27 February 1933. The event is seen as pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany.
At 21:25hrs a Berlin fire station received an alarm call that the Reichstag building, the assembly location of the German Parliament, was ablaze. The fire started in the Session Chamber and, by the time the police and firefighters had arrived, the main Chamber of Deputies was engulfed by flames.
Inside the building, a thorough search conducted by the police resulted in the finding of Marinus van der Lubbe. Van der Lubbe was a Dutch insurrectionist, council communist, and unemployed bricklayer who had recently arrived in Germany, ostensibly to carry out his political activities. The fire was used as evidence by the Nazis that the Communists were beginning a plot against the German government. Van der Lubbe and four Communist leaders were subsequently arrested.
Adolf Hitler, who had been sworn in as Chancellor of Germany four weeks before, on 30 January, urged President Paul von Hindenburg to pass an emergency decree to counter the "ruthless confrontation of the Communist Party of Germany". With civil liberties suspended, the government instituted mass arrests of Communists, including all of the Communist parliamentary delegates. With them gone and their seats empty, the Nazis went from being a plurality party to the majority; subsequent elections confirmed this position and thus allowed Hitler to consolidate his power.
Meanwhile, investigation of the Reichstag fire continued, with the Nazis eager to uncover Comintern complicity. In early March 1933, three men were arrested who were to play pivotal roles during the Leipzig Trial, known also as the "Reichstag Fire Trial": Bulgarians Georgi Dimitrov, Vasil Tanev and Blagoi Popov. The Bulgarians were known to the Prussian police as senior Comintern operatives, but the police had no idea how senior they were; Dimitrov was head of all Comintern operations in Western Europe.
Historians disagree as to whether Van der Lubbe acted alone or whether the arson was planned and ordered by the Communists (or the Nazis themselves, as a false flag operation). The responsibility for the Reichstag fire remains an ongoing topic of debate and research.
Clearly the Reichstag fire was used to present fear to the masses and the result led to war and tens of millions of people being killed and murdered.
There are some conspiracy theorists that believe modern day events such as 9/11, are a government conspiracy aka false flag operation. Some offer compelling evidence and questions that cause considerable consternation to those with questioning minds. However we believe that each person reading this missive has their own thoughts on these alleged false flag operation theories so we'll leave that topic at that. That said the fact of the matter is that throughout history governments have and continue to use events and pass laws that diminish your rights.
Remember the famous quote; "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
[Foot Note: This was used as a motto on the title page of An Historical Review of the Constitution and Government of Pennsylvania. (1759); the book was published by Benjamin Franklin (17 January 1706 - 17 April 1790); However the true author of that quote was Richard Jackson, but Franklin did claim responsibility for some small excerpts that were used in it.]
