Hey, this is Sandy for Red Dot Press and I am interviewing the man behind the blog YellowBox. His name is N. Burg. He actually told me what the N stands for I had to agree to not tell anybody. He now chuckles. Let’s continue.
Sandy: So, fear is a topic of our time. Many are scared and hopeless, fear of losing their job, or wealth, or status. What is your greatest fear?
N. Burg: Wow. I have no fear of losing such things. Mostly due to the fact that I live in Europe. But I have fears too. Anytime I hear about a terrorist attack, or a mass shooting or a mad man killing people randomly, I think to myself: Wow. You could end up there too. My greatest fear is the reckless of mad men. People who are deranged and full of anger and hate; not capabale of compensating such his own personal well being. People who kill and have no interest in whom it may hit. People who simply do not care. See, people can become pretty evil when there is no valve to let it out. Evil is no complicated thing. The less you do something against it, the worse it becomes. I always pray for such victims. Just imagine, you go out to the mosque, to your office ore whatnot and suddenly some maniacs begin to kill as many people as possible. I am not easily scared, you know. I mean, when I was a kid I didn’t dare to ride things in amusement parks. But I also – as a kid – did insane tricks with my skateboard. I am willing to pick up a battle at any given time. I will use all my power for the greater good. But I am a realist. I wouldn’t research things in states where you are not safe. I would not pick up a fight I couldn’t win. Hence I am split by courage. Some dissidents are highly curagous, but also highly stupid. I would not sacrifice my well-being and freedom just to critize a certain government. People should know that evil kills anyone in their way. Be it organized, planned, or the result of a thought in a mad man’s mind.
