“Fear is a reaction. Courage is a decision.”
Fear is an emotional response to a perceived threat. Key word: PERCEIVED.
How do we tell the difference between a “perceived” threat and a “real” one?
The simplest way is to engage your critical thinking skills and direct them at your fear.
Does your fear have a broad foundation in reality?
Or is it just another crass attempt to manipulate you emotionally so you will comply?
Politicians and unelected bureaucrats want your compliance. Media outlets obediently parrot those politicians and bureaucrats to the point of absurdity.
In these times we must grab hold of our integrity and our courage, then make the correct decision – even if it flies in the face of “conventional wisdom.”
Choose courage over cowardice, even if it means you must stand alone.
