State of Fear Michel Crichton Book

State of Fear

The name of a book.
I just finished this book by Michel Crichton.

He is Creator of the Television Series ER or Emergency Room; he has written many books including Jurassic Park. I am guessing but it appears they have made at least eight movies about his books.

675 pages, a good book for travelers, big enough to occupy the quiet.

I just arrived at the beaches of Bali; I truly hope this is a world class, book reading, and girl-watching beach as hinted. I finished this book last night, it took me two days, I am going to read it again. I am not sure I have ever read a book twice in a row. Yes, I know I have read books twice and three times, maybe four, however never again after just finishing.

I am excited, it is a book about what I dwell on, it explains why I came to see the Earthquake in Indonesia, the Volcano of Merapi, why I went to Iraq to see the war, and why I went to Niger to view the malnutrition problem.

Most people do not trust the government; I do not trust Television and Newspaper Journalist.

I do not trust the government either; however, I trust them more than I would a Journalist. I am not sure, I may trust a Journalist more than a travel writer.

Aaagh, I feel like a writer…

I wanted to comment or to journalize or write in my diary about the book, however I am too aware that others people are reading my diary. Therefore, I know I must create a frame of reference, I must show who, when, where, why, what, and how of a comments before I can start to explain or every comment is babble, like starting a sentence and not having a subject. One of the world largest sentence fragment thoughts.

State of Fear

A sense of Holiness sometimes surrounds me, I want to go to East Timor and a person asked,
- Don’t you feel afraid? -

I thought, tried to survey my feelings, fear was not one of the feelings, concern, worry, a sincere desire to plan, a need to be careful.

State of Fear

The book by Michael explains how the PML, the Politico-Legal-Media complex functions.

- The PML. And it is dedicated to promoting fear in the population---under the guise of promoting safety. -

State of Fear

The Television has created a - State of Fear -; the newspapers help to create a - State of Fear -.

I am sitting in Bali, a place full of tourist drones, this is a place someone recommended they come, and then are told…
- You will enjoy Bali. -

I see in Bali
- State of shopping -
- State of Party -
Strange as it may seem, I am here primarily because my Logic professor at Indiana University used Bali daily as an example of the - World most perfect Island. -

That was 30 Years ago, the world changes, or does it…


I was strolling near Khao San Road in Bangkok, Thailand; I looked over to a table selling books. This big white book stared back at me; I went over picked up the book and purchased it. It was the book, - State of Fear - by Michael Crichton. I was not actively searching for the book, the book found me.

I put it on hold while I finished a Robert Ludlum book, I decided to go light and ditched my five other books in the queue, traveled to Indonesia with only one book. - State of Fear - and of course the Robert Ludlum book in process. I went to go look at the Earthquake, the media, the NGO’s and all the other PML at work. Went home, finished my Robert Ludlum book, picked up the Michael Crichton book.

Ironic Coincidence

The book describes what I observed at the Indonesia Earthquake, or what I DID NOT SEE. I did not see a - State of Fear -; I did not see a - State of Fear - at the Merapi, Volcano.

When I watch the television or I read the newspaper, I was told about a - State of Fear -. But on the land, on the ground, at the Earthquake site, I did not see this, maybe I could search and find it, however I did not see it.

I met one white NGO, WASP, White Anglo Saxon Protestant from France, who worked for

I use the Non-Politically correct way of explaining, I define him as a White Man for a reason, it is not to be politically incorrect, I do not wish to hide behind dribble. There is this sold to the public idea that somehow the Western World or the White world is out traveling the planet being represented by White people who are somehow giving away their riches to the poor people. I do believe many person hope, many rich people hope, I have made a lot of money, I want to give or help the people in need on the planet.

They met this clear, concise, eloquent, and Politically correct person at a fund-raiser for the impoverished lands of the planet. Somehow, they were convinced, this person represents my beliefs. They gave a wad of money, and then this person pockets the majority, hires some peons to go do the work, knowing if they really fixed the problem, they would have no job.

I expect, think, hope to find some high-powered, result orientated, do or die, types running the show at these so-called disaster zones. The person from was closer, however in realty, he was only in Jogja to check out the situation, he was not there to work.

What I find is the weak, power hungry, I need a place to be in command persons. Not the people who do not want the job, but can get the job done people.

Michael Crichton

I am impressed with Michael Crichton, I will put him along side James Michener, hard to weigh them, Michael has computers, James wrote before the days of computers, not the same playing field.

90 percent, of what you see on News related Television is crap, it is meant to create a crisis, a disaster, an immediate sense, in many ways a - State of Fear -.

It is not true; it is fantasy, a misrepresentation of a situation to make money.

The Earthquake is real.
The explanations are not real.

Note: If you watch CNN or BBC it will say the Mount Merapi Volcano is closed, blocked off, nobody allowed, evacuated etc.

Then HOW did I take a photo?

Thanks Michael, I appreciate when a person does his best.
