No, i fear all of the governments with nuclear arms the same, as they can all cause the same effect.

That's a good point. I didn't think about it that way.

Generally speaking, my own government is the one whose policies have the most direct, immediate effect on my day-to-day life, so I'm more concerned with my own. The U.S. government is also scary because it's so powerful.

However, it's also a reactionary government, so it is affected by other nations' actions, so there is a whole cause-and-effect thing going that makes it hard to separate its own activities from everyone else's at times.

i'm afraid of the communist governments.well, and all the other governments comeing and attaking us 'cause they hate us so much.people say they are afraid of the U.S gov't because they hate it, but if you thought about it the U.S. couldn't really attack a country without all the other countrys allying with the attacked country.

I'm afraid more I think of the actions of other governments because they will effect what our government does. I'm afraid of living through a world war, especially with WMD and everything.

I'm afraid of my government as long as we have a complete dill weed in office making the decisions.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 2/28/04 - 9:35:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm afraid or our government more because of the power they have, and how much they control the media...1984 isn't to far in the future.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 3/3/04 - 9:42:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
Im not afraid of my government... I dont think 1984 will ever happen... the people are getting stronger (I sound so corny)

I fear only the Canadian government.

Because when the draft is reinstated, they might not let me into their country.

To fear the American Govrnment more than any other is pure stupidity. If you think our Gov. is bad you've never read about many others. Why don't you check up on Cuba or China. In China they kill baby girls and limit most famillies to one child.

Maybe you could ask a Cuban refugee why they fled Cuba to come to America. I'm sure it was just for a change of scenery. (that was sarcasm, for all of you who are to stupid to catch it)

Anyone who thinks that the American Govrnment is the worst in the world is blinded by their own problems with it. If you lived in a Communist or Third World country for one week you would beg to come back and be governed by America.

One of the best things about the American Gorvrnment is the freedom they give you to leave.

I've been told Canada is nice.

Am I the only one who found that incredibly nieve...

If you're in a democratic country, then on the whole you have little to fear, it's in the governments best interest to keep its people happy. More or less.
