Humans are literally governed by their emotions

Fear Humans are literally governed by emotions, this is what Jules Lobel, a Pitt professor of law, and George Loewenstein, professor of economics, explained in an article published in the Chicago-Kent Law Review. These scholars from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, School of Law, say that the emotional responses that guide much of human behavior have a tremendous impact on public policy and international affairs, prompting government officials to make decisions in response to a crisis--such as the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks--with little regard to the long-term consequences, exploiting emotions for their own end.
The understanding of the way emotions dictate our life has been a big part of the teaching of the Prophet Rael for the last 30 years.
