Frank Furedi, Professor of Sociaology, The University of Kent, UK and John D Dunn, MD, JDD USA: Frank Furedi is an expert on FEAR. He has written many books on the subject: How Fear Works. The Culture of Fear in the 21st Century. Over the past 20 years as society's basic values, beliefs and ideologies have declined or disappeared from public life, so increasingly fear is used to legitimize their arguments and causes. This applies to government taking control over fear of catastrophic man-made global warming, fear of use of our most important energy sources - fossil fuels and nuclear power.
