Fear is apparently a universal emotion; all persons, consciously or unconsciously, have fear in some sort.
In short, fear is the ability to recognize danger leading to an urge to confront it or flee from it.
Very few people understand the programming of fear, and why it distorts our perceptions.
While fear is a program used for our survival, fear also creates irrational beliefs that cause larger systems of fear like politics, religion and the media.
A Virus Called Fear is short film about the conditioning of fear, and what irrational fears can lead to. Written and directed by Ben Fama Jr.
