Death. I have thanatophobia so I'm really scared to death of...death (if you'll pardon the pun).

i dont have thanatofobia but i'm really scared of the death of family members or people I love, i cant even think of how to I handle something like that, but sooner or later im afraid we will all have to.

Yeah I'm afraid of that too. My worst nightmare is losing my children though. As afraid as I am of my own death, it would be more than I could bear if one of my children died before me. Parents should never outlive their children.

A friend of mine lost her 6 year old little girl last year to a brain tumour, and seeing her go through that was horrific.

Lmao that would be a very controversy conversation. I feel I would if I knew it would have no chance of living a real life.. (I've never had one) but I'm sure I would dislike my self if I were to go through with one.

That would be a fearful decision either way.

Spiders and aliens.

Spiders because...well, isn't it obvious?

Aliens scare the mess out of me. I get all creeped out when I think of life forms on other planets.

Snakes of the human variety scare me the most. Also, heights, being stranded somewhere unfamiliar, being in claustrophobic place like a forest of trees or some other place like that.
 
My fears are less of objects and things and have more to do with life and sanity. I do not really fear death, to me it is an eventuality ... it is always there. What I fear (and I don't dwell on this) is losing ability. I fear losing the physical ability and/or mental ability to take care of myself and have some control over what can do to take care of myself. When we are capable we have control and don't need to fear. When we lose that, we are dependent on others ... and that scares me.

How easily people can be manipulated into dropping the facade of civilized logic and allow themselves to turn into an unreasoning mob.

I totally agree, and you put it much more concisely than I probably would have done. Anyone and
everyone can be illogical on occasion, but people who embrace illogicality, who elevate emotion even when
visibly contrary to logic,( and there are so many,) scare, depress, and sometimes, frankly, nauseate me.

P.S. On a much, much lighter note, I would be inclined, (emotionally?) to agree with
anybody who was reading P.G. Wodehouse. By coincidence, I am currently
re-reading, for the umpteenth time, CARRY ON, JEEVES. Great!!

Carnies. Circus folk. Nomads, you know. Smell like cabbage. Small hands...
Muggers. Home invaders. The guy in the bar who is expressing his political opinions loudly
and aggressively and is just aching for someone to disagree, however moderately, so that
he can have, at least to his satisfaction, an excuse and opportunity to use his fists and his
boots on someone who is not wholeheartedly with him in his bigotry and his cherished
ignorance.
I suppose I just hate violent people.
