Paranoia

Recommended Posts

Last night I was watching TV with my mother before bed. She was watching an american 'documentry' about a sex offenders prison. My jaw dropped when the creepy music kicked in, it said something like

"95% of sex offenders get realsed. There is no way to tell who's a rapist or a child abuser. It could be anyone, even someone you know and you couldn't tell."

I couldn't believe how paranoid this show was trying to make people. It might as well said

"It's your naibour, and he's coming to get you now. In fact, HES BEHIND YOU WITH A KNIFE!"

It's nuts. I also find that kind of program going out under the name of 'documentry', or this kind of fear stuff in general to be irresponcable.

That's where the money is, sadly. :/

That. If there is anything that sells better than sex, it's fear.

Welcome to America in the 21st Century, where anything you say can and will be taken out of context and used against you in a court of law.  It's the witch hunt of the 17th Century, the "Communist" Hunt (Red Scare) of the 1950's, and today's "Terrorist" or "Child Molester/Sexual Predator" scare and baseless accusations of today.  Crap like this has me sometimes thinking of moving to Finland or Norway.  :|
