Fear is a mechanism to save us from danger. If you weren't fearful, perhaps you'll stay in inferno if there is a house fire or keep on standing where a terrorist is brandishing a knife. But there is also fear caused by irrational thoughts which does no good.
I'm not sure that this is necessarily true..

Common sense would tell you to get clear of a burning house. So there's no real need for fear per se. in fact fear can paralysis a person, or make them incapable of doing the simplest tasks.

A good education, wisdom, knowledge would work better.
