Memetic Monday: Fear is the Mind-Killer

I fell asleep trying to watch Dune 2. People will remember a few years ago I was rereading the books and shilling them. The movie is so boring and having a twink as Paul is so much worse than making Chani a literal nigger. But the movie just being so slow and droning is worse than anything else. When they introduced Feyd Rautha I was like “oh, but this is cool,” but then it went back to the other shit and I fell asleep.

If the guy who played Feyd would have played Paul, and Feyd would have been played by Jason Statham… well, the movie would still be boring as shit.

I think it’s the first time I’ve ever fallen asleep in a movie theatre.

Regardless, however, we all need to remember the thing:

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

It’s not exactly a prayer, but it is sort of like that.

Basically, everything bad that ever happened to you was because of fear, and everything good that ever happened was a result of a lack of fear.

It’s a lot better than “believe in yourself” or some other gay inspiration line. If you’re not afraid, you’re going to believe in yourself.
