One of the theme's in Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine concerns the way US citizens are kept perpetually in fear of some unknown bogey-man. As in George Orwell's 1984 it is important to keep people frightened in order to justify 'the state' spending all that money on police, security forces and defence to look after you. A number of Bloggers today make the same point as balders in expressing cynicism about the timing of our latest terrorist scare.
