I'm just curious about you guys as well. I was wondering what emotion you thought was most important in society. I personally think fear. Just because so many things result from it such as common sense and respect are a few of them. What do you guys think?

love

Love. If humans couldn't feel love, then there wouldn't be such thing as marriage.

Love gets nothing done, whereas fear'll drive a man to achieve great things.

Desire...

The reason for all things is desire. Even acts of selflessness are done for desire of something, such as the fulflling of ideals.

fear doesn't equal respect. respect comes from love. fear is simply fear which can lead to contempt.

Not entirely true why do you respect the police? Out of fear of being arrested most respect comes out of fear and yes I like how many people put love. The theory is that there are only two emotions and they are love and respect and everything derives from them both, however I prefer not to believe that because it isn't that simple if you have seen the movie Donnie Darko I think the same way he does on that subject.

Absence of emotions ftw. I live like that everyday day.

I think fear is what makes our society work, hatred is what makes us human, and happiness gives us an excuse not to slaughter ourselves. And I don't believe in love.

personally, love by far

and the idea of fear being a major factor in society, uh, wtf?

MAYBE if you lived in a place like iraq or mexico city or something, like, somewhere run by commies or some crazy tyranical bastard. otherwise fear should not be a dominant emotion in society. that would just suck

and on top of that some people dont have any fears

If you didn't have fear you would walk in the middle of the road and get hit by cars. Everyone has fear, fear is what keeps you alive and if you don't have it you'll die. Even suicidal people who might not fear death, fear life. Fear is ever present.

On a lighter note, candy.

Exactly. That's why fear=respect=arse.

Fear is what shaped societies like Stalin's and Mao's...which were essentially societies of countries whose actions pretty much defined (and define) the history of the modern world.

So yeah. Fear.

Thank you Mr. Spock. You can have Scotty beam your ass back up now. We have been enlightened.

Fear is an important emotional response. It keeps us alive. I would say it always leads to anger, loathing, contempt, and hatred not always to respect. Yes I have a healthy respect for things I know can kill me. I do not necessarily fear these things though. Respect comes from knowledge not emotion.
The emotion I respect the most is love. It conquers fear. Always.

Wow for a second think about what you just said. You pretty much said society isn't run on fear. Then why don't you just run out and shoot some cops then go out and steal a television. People not haveing fears? That is dumb people who say that fear not being "manly" enough to be respected by their peers and are probably most likely to do stupid things with frats. So congratualations you make the male gender look like a bunch of pricks.

Actually, I'm just curious. Am I the only one here who doesn't believe in love?


If you believe in fear or hate you have to believe in love it's like if you believe in heaven you also believe in Hell they must coexist it is the whole idea of Yin and Yang.
