On Halloween, people go to great lengths to frighten themselves and others. But what most people are afraid of is not what can hurt or kill them, but fantastic and mythological creatures that reside in our imaginations. Personally, I’m more afraid of unmanned drones mounted with .50 caliber machine guns roaming the streets of Seattle, or being plucked from my apartment by black clad hit squads, because I didn’t do what I was told, or even worse, mass depopulation of the planet by war, poverty and lack of the basic necessities of life. But such things hit a little too close to home for the majority of the public, so they would rather worry about poltergeists and zombies. As long as that’s the case, we don’t stand much of chance to divert the real horror show that is manifesting itself everyday. Happy Halloween.
