Wisdom. I see it.You want scary?
There are conservative religious groups in the world that are actively seeking to destroy your human rights and their own, they are so psychotically devoted to some words that were written in a book that they are willing to forsake all human dignities to accomplish their goals. Also Al-queda is probably planning an attack or something.
The United States has more nukes, more guns, more weapons, and better trained special operatives and soldiers than any country in the world, and every 4 years it is almost taken over by people who believe dinosaurs and man walked the earth hand in hand.
Almost every country in western civilization is actively working out ways to legalize spying on their own citizens, detain suspected criminals without cause, invade private property without warrants, cause communication blackouts, and censor free speech on the last place speech is free to exist.
That the only hero, the only small glimmer of light, the only people who stand up and fight against this bullshit is a bunch of half-devoted faceless internet tough guys who think hacking electronics companies will change the world.
If you're still scared of ghosts and chupacabras past your teens than you need to seriously reexamine your life.
