H uman nature has 2 important Characteristics i.e -Fear and desire. These 2 not only shape a human character but also the society. Manusmrirti identifies these 2 characters and creates out a social law book that will keep in check both, but does not inhibit them causing destruction to society.
M any great upheavals in society can be traced to avarice- excessive greed- like slavery, colonialism etc. But at the same time Fear the stick of dictator also has caused many calamities like Communism etc. In fact communism exasperated the people by killing desire and by handling through fear.
Understanding Fear will go to a great extend in understanding Human and societies behavior.
