Fear, it’s the strongest human emotion bred into us for one purpose, to keep us alive. But it can also kill us, if we let it.

You see that building? It was once the seat of power for the entire world. It stood tall in a shining city on a hill where so-called enlightened men promised their citizens a bright future.
