9. An important update and extension - John Dean's new book, just released
Hear about it, read about it. Here's a link for his interview with Olbermann, and there are links to other info on this important book too:

You could call this "the psychology of fascism," but it's more than that and it seems to be pretty universal when stimulated - something like a quarter of the population responds mindlessly, sets aside all their moral concerns and even rationality. Scare the population, unite them against an "enemy," pose as an authoritarian figure who can lead the way, and they will literally die for you. Wait until you hear what G. Gordon Liddy told Dean during the Nixon fall. He was willing to die because he "knew too much," only asked that he not be killed in his home because he had children.

Very scary, very important.
