Fear is used to control people by using threats to keep them in line. One example would be the Nazis keeping the Jews in line by threatening death for disobedience.
That’s a good example.
I terrible time
I said the same thing, nice thinking!
I hate when that happens!
Fear used a lot cuz look at the US prison system. Moke one weed? 3 years in federal prison. Say something bad about the czar? To the gulag with u.
Nice way of putting it 😂
These are great examples.
How very true
Fear can be used to control people because as human when we are in a state of fear we are easily persuaded and vulnerable. A great example is when the Nazis took control of Europe.
I like that
Fear can control people easily if we let it. Just like in old times people would use words or actions to emit fear to to others. It often holds us back and if we let it, prohibits us.
I agree. Fear can control you.
Fear is used to keep people within there limits. An example would be North Korea threatening to bomb us.
I can confirm this true.
I agree with this comment
Very unique comment and example
I completely agree
Post civil war, blacks had the right to vote but because of the kkk and other groups, they often didn’t.
This is true, they were threatened.
Or they did and died
I like the example
This is very clever
Imagine this, having an older sibling that threatened you if you say you’re going to tell your parents. We use fear against people to make them do what we want.
I do this with my siblings a lot.
An example of using fear to control people is violent and toxic relationships that usually include abuse.
I agree, especially in today’s society.
I agree. Especially in the society we have today
Fear is really often used to control people and what they do around the world. An example is how certain countries will provide very harsh punishments (sometimes death) if you do a thing against what they want, this is often used with dictators.
This is it, chief
Fear has been used many time to gain power because if you can either provide safety for people or scare people so they won’t do anything rebellious. An example is when slaves worked on plantations and if they did anything crazy they were beat and staved or worse.
Intelligent comment Treygan
Fear is constantly used to keep people from doing or saying certain things. For example, during the Cold War, it kept a lot of Americanism paranoid of nuclear war.
You are right.
There are threats of war and NK bombing us so we stay in a constant state of fear and submission. In the past Hitler scared everyone with threats and his army, which were scary.
I agree hitler was scary
Hitler drove fear into everyone’s hearts so that they would listen to him and so that he could gain power over the people.
Fear can control people really easily if we let it. When people are afraid they are more vulnerable and we use using threats of make people do things.
We do use treats more now to get want we can from other people.
When people are scared they will submit to almost anything. People will spend money or do extra work because they are afraid of the consequences.
I like your input
When people are scared they are very vulnerable. It is easy to manipulate them because they are willing to do anything to stay safe. Tabloids in supermarket checkouts use fake news to say things like “if you don’t vote for Trump the government will take your money.”
You are ten times more vulnerable when you are fearing something or someone
I agree. Trump will take your money
I agree when people are scared they are vulnerable
People do get vulnerable.
Fear is often used to control people like people with power can use it against society. Hitler is a great example when using fear to control people. He made people believe that Jews were so bad and if they didn’t believe him or help the Jews he would hurt them, putting fear into them being able to control them.
Yeah fear can control people.
Fear can prohibit you from trying new things and go out of your comfort zone. Fear holds you back. The phone company tricks you to buy a phone cause cause they make you think your phone is gonna break.
Cool story bro
Cool story dudeett
People often get scared and when they do people will manipulate them to get money or get what they want. For example parents buy all the safest, healthiest stuff for there kids when actually the companies are just manipulating your fear.
That’s very true
When people are afraid they will do anything to get out of that situation. A example is if someone pressures you to do something bad you might be afraid to say no
Fear can control people by holding them back and an example is like if you are scared of heights and you want to go on a roller coaster but your fear is heights it will hold you back.
That’s so true
I know your feeling
I fell that fear is very often to control groups of people. Some commercials show all of the “cool or popular people” using their product. People then are afraid of being left out or being the odd one out so they buy whatever the product may be. Some examples are the IPhone XR or new Nike shoes.
I like your input.
Fear can control people by preventing them from doing something an example is Anthony brought a snake in to biology and it held me back from going inside the classroom since I sit by him.
I’m sorry you had to sit by him
Fear can hold people back from doing stuff
Usually if you’re scared for your life you won’t do anything that would jeopardize your chances of living. Just like in The Hunger Games the Districts are afraid of the government because of the power they posses.
Good job voicing your thoughts.
Fear can hold people back from what they want to do. Like say you want to ride a roller coaster but you are to scared. That is fear holding you back.
