Fear Mongering, Part 5,162

One of the most objectionable tactics of The Old Guard in Kansas is that they never hesitate to pump in a bunch of fear and loathing into the debate over how we should manage our natural resources.

This letter to the editor is a prime example. You can search all through this letter, but you won’t find any mention of the coming water crisis in Kansas, or of how the rural economy of Kansas has been slowly sinking out of sight. What you will find is an attempt to whip people into a frenzy over the prospect of “land grabbing bureaucrats.”

America has enough real enemies. We don’t need to be inventing phony ones.
