2. Yep, I see this particularly in politicians and religious leaders, they often
attract flocks that follow them blindly, right or wrong. In my corporate life I've seen the tough guy admired, the CEO/director that "can make the hard decisions." ... destroying people lives, employees, customers, it did not seem to matter. I used to wonder how one could be so callous ... now in retrospect I see them not as strong wise leaders, but rather as sociopaths/psychopaths that have manipulated themselves into these power-trip controlling positions ... and sadly, a deranged capitalistic system highly rewards these sociopaths/psychopaths.
