Fear is often used to control people. In Star Wars it's the empire. There are the nazis, soviets, the dark ages, and many other examples. It can be physical threats of death, or just a mental fear where they would not really hurt you.
I think mental fear is one of the scariest types of fear.
I agree that mental fear is one of the bad fears.
Mental fear is honestly the worst in my opinion.
Fear is used to scare people into being submissive because most people, if their life is threatened, will agree to whatever demands. Also, the unknown terrifies us and there are people who exploit it. An example is Hitler, and war lords from the medieval ages.
I liked how you used Hitler as you example. I also liked how you pointed out the the unknown causes fear in us.
Nice observation on how the unknown scares us and good examples! 👌🏼
Fear is often used to control people and keep them submissive by causing them to believe something that isn't really true or irrational. For example I think that war causes a lot of fear in people.
I love how you brought up the idea of war bringing fear into others
I like how you said that they make them believe things that aren't real
I agree that war causes a lot of fear in people
The unknown is pretty scary to most people. When something threatens somebody they will do whatever it takes to get rid of that fear whether it's being a suck up or becoming stronger to overthrow.
I agree people are scared of the unknown and they take actions they usually wouldn't.
It makes them do things they wouldn't usually do. It also keeps them from revolting against them. The Nazi, Francisco Pizarro, and Cristopher Columbus.
You're right. Fear makes people do things that they would never normally do. It can completely twist someone's mind.
It makes people to afraid to go near or try to cope with their fear. I feel like the nazis had some fear in the whole thing they did.
I agree about the Nazis, some of them had to be unwilling.
If the Jews had no fear of them, it would have been easier to take them down.
I agree people try to stay away from there fear instead of facing them.
Sometimes you can be threatened and completely under rule of someone you fear because they have power to hurt you. Maybe like Hitler and the Koo Klux Clan. Some today might be kidnappers or unwilling members of Isis.
And I agree with kidnappers and unwilling members of isis
I think fear is used to control people because people are so scared of people judging them for what they're doing that they don't ever do anything out of their comfort zone. One example from today is when people are getting bullied they're to scared to tell anyone about it because the person bullying them threatens them and says that it's going to get worse.
I liked how you used bullying as your example. I feel like that puts a lot of fear in people.
I think that bullying is a good example of this.
I agree with you that a way of fear is through bullying
I like how you brought up bullies using fear to there advantage
Great example with the bullies. They really can put an extreme amount of fear into people.
People can use others fear to control other people into doing thing or to keep them from doing thing. A current event of fear could be when someone kidnaps someone else because they will probably say that they are going to kill their family or friends and it will frighten them into going with the person that is going to kidnap them.
I agree with your example of kidnappers.
Kid napping is a good example.
Fear can be used so that people are scared about something happening to them or their family or friends. The people trying to control others can be extreme and actually harm others or they can be all talk. Examples are Nazis in Germany who were definitely not afraid to harm people.
I heard that some of the Nazis were actually nice people and they were forced to take control of the Jews. They were forced to hurt people or else they might be killed and that's not good either.
I agree that people sometimes can be all talk.
I think it's really interesting how a lot of people thought of Hitler for there example of a leader using fear
I like how you said they can do harm or they can be just all talk.
Rulers do terrible things to people to set an example of what would happen if they didn't listen or do what they said. In the camps during the Holocaust, they had to do what they were told or else they would be beaten. There were also Jews who hid so they wouldn't have to go to the camps because they had heard some things that were happening in them.
I like how you said that rulers used people for examples in order for people to see what would happen if they didn't listen
I like how you explained about the rulers.
Fear is often used as a sort of weopon against people because fear often more than not dictates all of our decisions in life. Christopher Columbus is a good example.
The native Americans had a lot to fear. They have never seen guns, and that had to scare them.
Fear is the key to power. Dictators or controlling groups of people gain power by convincing one group of people that a different group of people is bad. Then that dictator threatens to harm that group of people by using their convinced group of people as army to gang up against them. Then no one wants to stand up against that discrimination because they are afraid so they stay quiet. This happened in WW2, it happens in schools with bullying, it happened with discrimination against blacks, and also in the Cold War.
I agree fear is the key to power
*****I meant the Bosnian war, not the Cold War.
Pepeople who try and control Certain things use fear in order to have people do what they say. When you scare some one it makes it so they are no longer confident and are then vulnerable to persuasion. Some events is the kings in bibicle times, they would kill people if they didn't do what t hey asked
I like what you said how it doesn't make them confident anymore.
Fear is used as a weapon or tool to help further a cause or to prevent others from rising up because almost everyone is afraid of something or losing something and people could exploit that. Some examples that fear was used were Adolf Hitler and the Nazi's, Saddam Hussein, and Christopher Columbus.
If you are a scared or afraid of something it can be held against you to not do something because you don't want anything to happy to you.
People are scared for their life so they will do anything to sabe it. Hitler did this to his subjects. If they didn't give in and be a followet they would be dead.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
