The Lucifer Effect

I came upon this quote recently, it’s from a book about the War on Terror:

“Fear is the State’s psychological weapon of choice to frighten citizens into sacrificing their basic freedoms and rule-of-law protections in exchange for the security promised by their all-powerful government.”

-Philip G. Zimbardo

2020 has been a year of relentless fear-mongering while civil liberties and personal freedoms have been vanquished.

Devil’s in the detail.
