Trump and Authoritarianism

Clarity. A must-view, short video from Vox surveying some of the political science data on authoritarianism and its relation to Trump. A really excellent summary.

    I agree with the premise.

  2. There is no political science to explain Trump. Don’t waste your time on an empty shell of a man whose only claim to fame is his wealth and the arrogance this affords him. All of the sheer psychoanalyses of his behaviour and posturing is nothing more than delusional desires to credit him with complexity where there is none. To get down to basics he is a very rich man who is used to and loves all of the attention and power he can get and does not have an iota of integrity or idea what he’s doing so long as he feels good and keeps feeling good about himself.
