Fear is the clear winner. Look at the Nazi Germany, they feed the public with a totally unreal fear for jews, making them more prone to treat them terribly.

Fear. It works better, and it's not illegal like spreading lies which is false advertisement.

fear has the edge over lies, although a lot of fearmongering is founded on lies.

Fear is the only way to manipulate and control mass amounts of people.

Besides, lies have one massive flaw: if the truth gets out you are left powerless.

Publicly killing mass amounts people is what gave the Nazis their power.

I agree. If you were spreading fear not based on lies, shouldn't you spread it for the sake of those around you?

If you yelled "Fire!" in a crowded building and there was no fire you would be spreading a lie which causes fear. If the building was on fire, it would be a good idea to yell fire.

I assume you mean the fear based on lies? Which means voting for fear is also voting for lies. The lies take it!!!!
