What is Blind Paranoia and Why is it So Dangerous?
When one fears imaginary villains they must deny real world monsters.

Phobia is an irrational fear which follows on the heels of suspicious paranoia – irrational fear of a supposed threat that is not really there – the hell of falsehood seen. Another form of distress eventually follows on the heels of blind paranoia – an irrational lack of fear for an unseen threat that really is there – the hell of truth unseen. The latter case is a restatement of an insight by Thomas Hobbes from Leviathan where he noted that “Hell is truth seen too late.”
It appears to me that many Americans are unable or unwilling to see that our national government, including the current President, has used Marxist methods of divisive economic and social class struggle among our people, and has used the IRS to target American patriots who support our founding principles. Looking for terrorists in all the wrong places, our national government has used the NSA and other agencies to spy on ordinary Americans instead of targeting the domestic adherents of totalitarian Islam – with whom our national government has in effect formed an alliance. Our President and former Vice President promote the now discredited theory of man-made global warming – as the most important issue facing mankind. The consensus of real science informs us otherwise – yet too many Americans are blind to the truth – unaware that over a period of 600 million years there has been no direct correlation between atmospheric CO2 levels and atmospheric temperature, and that the recent relatively minor period of global warming, like prior periods of global warming, was probably related to the big yellow ball in the sky. By these actions and this disinformation our national government has tyrannically undermined the God-given, natural, unalienable human rights of ordinary hard-working Americans – and is thereby undermining the successful American way of life. My diagnosis is that too many Americans are suffering from the insanity of blind paranoia – individuals who can’t or won’t perceive the threats that are already inside our tent. In order to preserve sanity we must continue to speak the truth about our corrupt self-serving national government, and continue to hope and work toward a good prognosis for America – praying that the truth will not be seen too late.
