I've discussed before the situation where NRA leaders are allegedly fleecing the organization. There's also news that the NRA was offering insurance for gun-owners in case they got in a shoot-out. Allegedly, this scheme was questionable if not another scam. It's also a money-losing operation for the NRA. Finally comes news that a militia leader was extorting members of his 'militia'.

The common thread? All of the people being fleeced are fearful. Science fiction fans are familiar with a quote from the book Dune: "Fear is the mind-killer."

The people being fleeced have turned their minds off.
