The Only Thing to Fear

Dusting off some high quality '80s tunes, I came across REM's Life's Rich Pagent album. Clicked play on the RioPlayer. Turns out Michael Stipe isn't always just pretentious, but can be insightful.

This set of lyrics from Hyena is rather powerful:

The only thing to fear is fearlessness
The greater the weapons the bigger the fear

It reminds me of an old TV ad for Gunsmoke, of all things (not many people may even remember that show). A voice-over in the ad is James Arness saying "A man who isn't afraid, is a fool."

I think of that whenever someone comfuses the terms "courage" and "stupidity."
