Fear is one of the 7 Caregiver Landmines, and it can lead us down dark paths as individuals ...and as a nation.
While Americans put collective shoulders to the wheel to protect fellow citizens, an age-old problem now emerges—one I recall my father cautioning against more than forty years ago. “Beware of small people with authority.”
A sad consequence of America’s drastic efforts in dealing with the COVID-19 virus is the elevation of Frank Burns” types (from the TV show, M*A*S*H*). These “small-minded” individuals seem to draw excitement from pursuing their gratification while others struggle.
“Funny thing, war - Never have so many suffered so much, so, so few could be so happy!!"– Major Frank Burns
Surrendering freedom to fear will always be met with the intense rush of those willing to consume that freedom for their own power.
Like guardrails on a curving highway, the rules exist for all—but there will always be those who desire rules for others but not for themselves. Only the bravery of those who love freedom can curtail those who wish to use calamity to satisfy their lusts for control.
