Fear is Indeed to Be Feared

In his 1933 inaugural address, Franklin D. Roosevelt said "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." 

I am reading Michael Crichton‘s "State of Fear," a well-written thriller.  The plot involves radical environmentalists wreaking havoc on the world.  Especially when the environment’s concerned, I feel that it’s exceedingly easy to create frenzies (and raise funds).  I have been curious on some of the thinking on the issue.

That’s when I came on to this speech given by Crichton.  He’s a bright guy and a good writer.  It’s interesting.
