Bob Altemeyer in The Authoritarians asks, ... "how about a government program that persecutes political parties, or minorities, or journalists the authorities do not like, by putting them in jail, even torturing and killing them. Nobody would approve of that, right? Guess again. ...

If [you] believe the extreme right-wing elements in America are still working to take over the country despite the recent election--nay because of it, ... the authoritarians aren’t going away.
Yes, the research shows they are very aggressive, but why are they so hostile? Yes, experiments show they are almost totally uninfluenced by reasoning and evidence, but why are they so dogmatic? ... What happens when authoritarian followers find the authoritarian leaders they crave and start marching together?"


Defenders of the so-called enhanced interrogation techniques are fast running out of classified documents to hide behind. The three that were released recently by the C.I.A. — the 2004 report by the inspector general and two memos from 2004 and 2005 on intelligence gained from detainees — fail to show that the techniques stopped even a single imminent threat of terrorism.
