The resulting 'trust' is an interesting little piece of propaganda...
on that same topic, I always found it interesting that the US took away
the 'liberty-head' coins from circulation and replaced it with dead
presidents... The little logo 'In God we Trust' next to the image of
liberty was more meaningful I guess. Placing that logo next to a
president sorta makes it a divine-right type of thing, eh?

'Interesting' is perhaps an unfortunate word here, but accurate. For
the same reason a car-crash is interesting to others, or China's
waring-years is interesting to historians. I can try to convince others
that 'fear' is useless, and help attempt to avoid the situation we're
currently in, but my words don't go far enough where I am. (And if I
could direct counter-memes to combat the 'fear', I would) Either way,
it is interesting, otherwise we wouldn't be talking about it.
