  •  Such is the culture of authoritarianism. (9+ / 0-)

    You're not allowed to not obey absolutely. You're not allowed to think differently. You're not allowed to speak, for it cannot be risked that you'll win others to your position. You cannot stand opposed to those in authority, for it questions the absolute rightness of that authority. Thus anyone who does anything but praise and adulate those in authority, regardless of what the authority does, is a bad person and any statements against the authority is an act of aggression. That's why so many conservative Christians are authoritarian; for them the foundation of their religion -- the story of Eden -- is that every human is evil because of disobeying God. It is all born out of their severe dislike of ever being questioned themselves.
