Be scared, be reeeeeeeal scared!

The newest fear-mongering tactic, AND AN ORIGINAL ONE!
I think they should bring back the acid rain one from the 80s, that was one of my favorites, much better than the killer bees [didn't we just have a no bee scare tactic a year or two ago, the crops were no longer being pollinated and we were all going to starve?], AIDS and before that Global Cooling.

Democracy's a very fragile thing. You have to take care of democracy. As soon as you stop being responsible to it and allow it to turn into scare tactics, it's no longer democracy, is it? It's something else. It may be an inch away from totalitarianism.
