I recently sent this letter to the Wall Street Journal:
Michio Kaku states that he and other “scientists are applauding the Russian Space Agency for addressing the [threat of an earth-bound asteroid], even if the danger from Apophis is slight. Sooner or later we will face a catastrophic threat from space” (Russia Takes Aim at Asteroids 1/6).
I would argue that scientists and the population at large face and are ignorant of devastating threats from within our own terrestrial ball. Governments routinely perform catastrophic acts against their people when they try to educate children, regulate entire industries, and perform eminent domain. What’s more, they insult our intelligence by telling us these things are for are own good – as if we can’t make our own decisions about education, health, and property!
Asteroids present danger only in the sense that they provide more “crisis” opportunities for government to grab power and eliminate more of our liberties.

If you're scared of asteroids....
You should check out what the government has done to the money supply. Just don't forget where the real danger lies. And don't think too small: the real battle is not about ideologies, free-markets vs. socialism, big government vs. small government etc. Things are far bigger than that. The real battle is still and always will be, until the final victory comes, between the woman's seed and the seed of the serpent. And men won't have free markets until God grants men free grace.
