Thanks for MHO
Was going to write my own piece, but this nailed it and probably is less than half the words that I - in my usual long winded way - would have used. Thumbs up.Though I would add that it is true in a political context that it is true. Ditto generally in one's professional life, up to a point. However, in one's personal life it is arguable that love is better. Fear will get us the results we want, but not the affection and "connection" that we need. So in that sense the answer is a qualified one.Still and all, nuances aside, the author of this opinion - drawing on Machiavelli, for which I give a tip of the hat to this obviously well educated writer - is bang on.

IDon't...I'm not sure
Ok I see
There's no respect involved in a fear-based relationship. Only resentment.
@HungLikeAHorsefly I wasn't talking about relationships ,. i was talking about other fields like sports
I was talking about politics and/or business.
@HungLikeAHorsefly Well it helps if your in school or in any competitive fields
Oh, I'm not saying fear isn't useful. I'm just saying it's not equivalent to respect.
