Fear is a multi-trillion dollar industry. We are fearful of our death, losing our job or relationship. Many dictators came to power instigating fear of religion or race.
On the startup front, fear dominates over competitors taking away our market or someone copying our ideal. In short, fear keeps us on our toes.
