EM Topic 4 - Fear
Fear… it's one of those things that most people want to avoid but some wish to create. For some, fear means power and power means domination, but that just doesn’t fly with me. You can’t lead people through fear - well, no, actually, you can, but it never ends well. At some point the frightened are going to suck it up and retaliate.

Fear can be many things... some rational, some not. Take water for example – there is a very good reason that I should be apprehensive of water… but I don’t constantly fear it. I use it all the time *sly smile* but uh, yeah – if I’m dealing with some bad guy and someone turns a hose on? Then it could be argued that I might fear the consequences… because y’know… dying is not quite what I would have planned while dealing with a bad guy.

Actually that’s another big on, isn’t it? Lotsa people fear death… they may not see that there are fates worse than death. Y'know, something like Ekhart's pods... being conscious in one of those things... aware and yet stuck, unable to do anything.

There's a wise old little green guy who once said that fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering. … makes sense, doesn't it?

Did you just quote Star Wars? Really sometimes I think you need to get out just a bit more than you do.

Aaah .. but how do you know what I quoted?! You're a closet Obi fan aren't you?!

*cheeky grin* Shalimar likes Obi Wan!

Wait... Obi? Ewan McGregor Obi, or old dude Obi.

It doesn't matter, you said little green guy. To be honest? I almost thought you were talking about Kermit the frog, but the hatred bit sounded too Yoda to me.

I've seen them once, and once was enough.

Once, huh? And yet you know of the two Obi's...

The Force is strong in this one *dramatic pause*

Isn't it Kermit D Frog?
