    That's what they want, that's partly what motivates them make people AFRAID.

    Remember FDR's quote

    We have nothing to fear but fear itself.

    I know academia will NEVER allow 'FEAR' to keep them from study and research

    •  Academics let fear (0+ / 0-)

      keep them from study and research all the time. For researchers it's the fear of losing their jobs. Most of them don't have tenure. And I think my being worried about death threats on Mr. Parker's behalf is quite valid and isn't stopping me from doing anything.

      Fear and action are not mutally exclisive.
