3. A quote from the documentary #Unfit

"Once you get on board psychologically, once you commit to a demagogueish ideologue, that puts up a fact-proof screen between you and the world." - Sheldon Solomon, social psychologist

The movie is really interesting, and frightening. He has a long, detailed explanation, but that is the gist of his explanation. Frightened people fall in line between authoritarians who use key words and techniques to make them feel threatened, even if the threats don't exist. Humans revert to tribal behavior.
