End Piece: “The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear It’self…”

There’s a lot of fear running through America and the results ain’t pretty. I know that we write about advertising on this blog, but I just have to comment. Fear prevents progress. We all know this, but just in case you forgot take a look at those deathstar agencies losing market share everyday. Or, better yet, take a look at the blood curdling video above. Doesn’t it feel as though we are about to tip over a dangerous and complicated line? Fear begets fear begets fear.

“The only thing we have to fear is fear it’self – nameless, unreasoning, unjustified, terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.” – FDR, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1933
