Generally it’s accepted that we avoid thing we’re afraid of, or do we actually ?
Horror movies, why would we watch these for instance ? Or any other movies which have narratives of violence, terrorism, torture, killing and so on, which is probably the rule rather than the exception …
Ever see a fight break out in the street, or a bar ? … sometimes people disperse, but more often than not a group of spectators forms, same as a boxing match or Roman gladiatorial contest …
I could go on, probably all day, but that’s not the point of inviting your opinions …
The question is – why are we attracted to things we’re afraid of, or not ?
