" You can force the appearance of respect through fear but the minute the threat of force is gone you'll discover the real attitude if the victim -- and it's not likely to be respect."
Yes, I agree there are important distinctions there - so, it's basically all about what is responsible for how we view others, in a nutshell. And fear is at one end of the scale to true respect/regard for another.
However, there are exceptions to this, when one can both fear and admire another. Take the German WWII general, Rommel, for example: feared for his advances through North Africa, yet admired by both sides for his leadership qualities and strategic talents. Thus, here is an instance of someone who was feared for what he represented but whose personal attributes were, paradoxically, held in high esteem.
