30. It's so obvious that they can't think on their own. Ask one to explain how their leader stands on

 

an issue. Most will call you names and ignore the question. I doubt that they even know what their leader's stand is on issues, because it isn't important to them. The relationship between the authoritarian leader and the follower is symbiotic. Neither is anything without the other. Take the followers away from a bully and they quickly show that they are truly cowards. I have also noted that if you stand up to the bully, they immediately start whining that they are the victim.

In politics, it's no use trying to reason with an authoritarian. They haven't matured to the point of being capable of reasoning.
