29. Authoritarianism is about the 'followers'.
Edited on Fri Oct-15-04 10:42 AM by TahitiNut
We're heavily indoctrinated in this country.

Parents are "authority figures." (Most resort to "because I say so" much of the time.)
Teachers are "authority figures." (Most resort to "because I say so" much of the time.)
Bosses are "authority figures." (Most resort to "because I say so" much of the time.)
Police are "authority figures." (Most resort to "because I say so" much of the time.)

Smirky McFascist leverages this. He's constantly saying he was 'right' because he still agrees with himself. :eyes:

My favorite button for many years, which I still wear, is "Question Authority!"
