The fear of things

in #steemleo3 years ago


THE FEAR OF POVERTY! It requires courage to
tell the truth about the history of this enemy of
mankind, and still greater courage to hear the truth
after it has been told. The Fear of Poverty grows out
of man's habit of preying upon his fellow men,
economically. The animals which have instinct, but no
power to THINK, prey upon one another physically.
Man, with his superior sense of intuition, and his more
powerful weapon of THOUGHT, does not eat his
fellow man bodily; he gets more pleasure from eating
So great an offender is man, in this respect, that
nearly every state and nation has been obliged to pass
laws, scores of laws, to protect the weak from the
strong. Every blue-sky law is indisputable evidence

of man's nature to prey upon his weaker brother
The second of the Six Basic Fears with which
man is bound down is:
THE FEAR OF OLD AGE! This Fear grows out of
two major causes. First, the thought that Old Age may
bring with it POVERTY. Secondly, from false and
cruel sectarian teachings which have been so well
mixed with fire and brimstone that every human being
learned to Fear Old Age because it meant the approach
of another and, perhaps, a more horrible world than
The third of the Six Basic Fears is:
THE FEAR OF ILL HEALTH: This Fear is born
of both physical and social heredity. From birth until
death there is eternal warfare within every physical
body; warfare between groups of cells, one group
being known as the friendly builders of the body, and
the other as the destroyers, or "disease germs." The
seed of Fear is born in the physical body, to begin
with, as the result of Nature's cruel plan of permitting
the stronger forms of cell life to prey upon the
weaker. Social heredity has played its part through
lack of cleanliness and knowledge of sanitation. Also,
through the law of suggestion cleverly manipulated by
those who profited by ILL HEALTH.
The fourth of the Six Basic Fears is:
This Fear fills the asylums with the insanely jealous,
for jealousy is nothing but a form of insanity. It also
fills the divorce courts and causes murders and other
forms of cruel punishment. It is a holdover, handed
down through social heredity, from the stone age when

man preyed upon his fellow man by stealing his mate
by physical force. The method, but not the practice,
has now changed to some extent. Instead of physical
force man now steals his fellow man's mate with
pretty colorful ribbons and fast motor cars and bootleg
whisky, and sparkling rocks and stately mansions.
Man is improving. He now "entices" where once
he "drove.
