....."A society or person that has allowed a tyrannical government or Bully to be responsible for them rather than being pro active become reactive...afraid of making the giant angry. This fear gives the tyrannical government or Bully more power over the fearful. All a Bully has to do is create the scenario that says if you do this you might count on me, but if you don't you should be afraid of me. This in turn creates more fear. Especially when the Bully is erratic. It also feeds the Bully's ego.
Fear is an emotion and emotions are hard to control...they are just feelings."
