Get In Line

"We are turning into a nation of whimpering slaves to Fear—fear of war, fear of poverty, fear of random terrorism, fear of getting down-sized or fired because of the plunging economy, fear of getting evicted for bad debts or suddenly getting locked up in a military detention camp on vague charges of being a Terrorist sympathizer."

Thompson was afraid of a lot of things, including old age and boredom. In his dementia, he projected many of those fears onto the entire nation.

Misery loves company, even if it is all in the mind (or what's left of it).
