Here is a thought for you: "The entire information security industry today is based on fear". The fear of getting hacked and your integrity and reputation being publicly jeopardized and challenged.
This is what gives security vendors the power to sell you useless products which you don't really need.
There are leaders and there are followers. Some people don't like to think for themselves. Ignorance is a bless, as we say. If you want to be part of the system then it is OK, but if you want to be free then you can do that too.Now, regarding the
fearthing. I agree that fear is used as a tool for far too long. The only way to learn how to fight it is to learn how it works or why it works. And to that, all you need is the question. The question to fear is
Why I am afraid?or maybe even,
What's the worse that can happen?, I guess, since all our fears come down to our existential needs.
