I offer you a job, and tell you in advance it is risky and you could hurt your limbs, blow out a knee or break fingers. Then you fatally injure your brain. I didn't mention long-term brain damage as a possible risk, and maybe I didn't know about it. If I did know about it, but didn't tell you, is that wrong?

…authoritarian followers drive through life under the influence of impaired thinking a lot more than most people do, exhibiting sloppy reasoning, highly compartmentalized beliefs, double standards, hypocrisy, self-blindness, a profound ethnocentrism, and—to top it all off—a ferocious dogmatism that makes it unlikely anyone could ever change their minds with evidence or logic. These seven deadly shortfalls of authoritarian thinking eminently qualify them to follow a would-be dictator.
