3. So

positions by nature authoritative are refuges for abuse. Positions open only to service are bad fits. Some logic would dictate either screening(they do and not always effectively) or eliminating or changing the authoritative model/rationale wherein these weeds flourish. One element is emotional. People who are looked up to with a gut emotional warmth that is sickeningly misplaced. McCain and Ron Paul used to have fans on DU. Some CEO's commanded some fandom. So you can see how easy it is to be abused. The very rating of "respect" doled out in society is too off the beam to control the bad apples. In some cases the whole barrel is pretty moldy.
