Quote from John Adams 

"Fear is the foundation of most governments;
but it is so sordid and brutal a passion,
and renders men in whose breasts it predominates
so stupid and miserable, that Americans will not be
likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it."

John Adams
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
