Oddly enough, the last time I looked, Communism was dead, dead, dead, except to the Republican Party, which seems determined to keep it alive.

    Altemeyer specifically targets the GOP/Tea Party on his website for “The Authoritarians” these days. Has for a bit, I presume. If you haven’t downloaded the pdf and given it a read, I do recommend it. He has this type of person nailed. And toward the end he talks about some simulations and games on world/national governance he’s run in which authoritarians are given control. Disaster always ensued.

    I’ll definitely check out the PDF.

    A long time ago, I read the Authoritarian Personality.  Daniel Bell also did a lot work in this area.    

    Not much has changed.
