A sad state of affairs…

Having trained in psychology as a younger man I’ve found it absolutely disgusting the way that our so-called leaders have embraced fear mongering over the coronavirus. They’re using fear as a mechanism of control. (Aided by ‘clickbait’ from large sections of the media.)

They want you to be frightened. They want you to be cowering at home, too scared to venture out into the light.

Don’t get me wrong, there are certainly things to be wary of in this world. But if you want to be afraid of something, be afraid of government; not this virus.

To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin:

“Those that are prepared to sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither and will ultimately lose both.”

I learnt a long time ago that in order to grow it is necessary to step outside one’s comfort zone. As a person who craves growth and change this has led me to continually seek out opportunities to make myself uncomfortable, whether physically, emotionally or psychologically. The (Dis)Comfort Zone blog is a vehicle for cataloging those experiences.
