    they lust for power and they know that fear makes normal people succumb easier to power under the banner of protection. So they stoke fear in others. Not themselves! People who are afraid themselves sound very different.  

    •  No, they are afraid beyond rationality (6+ / 0-)

      The worst are paranoid. In the medical sense.mitigate their own fears and deep

      They intimidate others in a desparate attempt to mitigate their own fears and their deep, deep, insecurities.

      Name calling. Bullying.

      They don't have any idea what to do if they actually had power. They just want it because they're afraid of others who actually have power.

      People who are paranoid sound like this, They behave like this.

      Fear is the great motivator. Not power.
