Here's an excerpt:

Quote:
Dean contends, and amply documents, that the "conservative" movement has become, at its core, an authoritarian movement composed of those with a psychological and emotional need to follow a strong authority figure which provides them a sense of moral clarity and a feeling of individual power, the absence of which creates fear and insecurity in the individuals who crave it. By definition, its followers' devotion to authority and the movement's own power is supreme, thereby overriding the consciences of its individual members and removing any intellectual and moral limits on what will be justified in defense of their movement.

John Dean and Authoritarian Cultism - a Review
)
by Glenn Greenwald, author of How Would a Patriot Act? at:

the reason I bring this up is the possible Meme: Authoritarians (instead of Conservatives), since they aren't at all conservative, nor do they agree on any ideology, as Greenwald explains in the article.
