Terrorization

How much longer will it take for people to realize that the real "Terrorists" in this world are news organizations and government officials who over-hype and sensationalize every issue they can get their hands on?  I'm not belittling the efforts of those who seek to inflict harm upon others, but when you stop and think about it, there has been more damage resulting from irrational and unprofessional behavior by news organizations than there ever was from real destruction of life and property (I have no solid proof of this...just speculation :P).  It might be nice if these organizations invested minimal effort to become less the tools of the criminally insane and more the purveyors of logic and reason.  Is there no money to be made in reporting facts?

While I am on the subject, why are Christians so afraid of dying?

Have you seen the movie, "V for Vendetta?" It focuses basically upon your ideas that governments are the true terrorists...although the movie does take it to the extreme. Its an awesome movie and I really recommend it. Jeff owns it if you'd like to borrow it sometime :)

I haven't seen it, but I thought the previews looked good. Might have to take you up on that offer some day :)

By the way, if you haven't noticed, you are the first person to comment on my blog ever...thanks!
