    Death

    Based on what little information I can find on the subject, and my own interpretations, I believe humans were less afraid of death thousands of years ago than they are now. I think part of it might have been religion based, the other part was they dealt with death on a regular basis. They were closer to the natural world and understood death better.

    There are some that say, and I tend to agree that the root of all anxiety, phobia, OCD, mental disorders etc. stems from the fear of death. . . Thanatophobia.
    It could very well be that because we are so focused on ourselves we have become more afraid of dying then we might have been thousands of years ago.

    There is such a moment that people used to live less, diseases, droughts, hunger, difficult climatic conditions! All this accompanied an already not very good standard of living! Therefore, they were rather afraid than not, I agree with you!
