My Son Has Ruined Zelda: Breath Of The Wild by Mark Serrels [Kotaku] "A few details before I go into precisely how my son is ruining my Zelda game. A few answers to questions I suspect you might ask. Firstly why is my son playing Zelda? I dunno. It just happened and now it keeps happening. Secondly, why is he playing my game and not his own game? Simple answer: I've got all the cool power-ups and the cool weapons. His chances of actually inching his way through and earning those rewards at four years old are at monkeys writing Shakespeare odds at this point. Thirdly, why do I keep letting this happen? Love, ladies and Gentlemen. Love."
My hope is that by reading Adorno again, we might discern how Trump at once instantiates the category of the "authoritarian personality" but also challenges its meaning. The AP study, I will suggest, contained two distinct lines of argument. The first of these arguments qualified as the "official" discovery of the research program, and its basic message is the one MacWilliams identified in the passages quoted above, namely, it claimed to have identified a new "psychological type." The second argument was rather more sobering and radical in its implications: it suggested that the authoritarian personality signified not merely a type but rather an emergent and generalized feature of modern society as such.

Bob Altmeyer, The Authoritarians
This book was written in 2006, halfway through George W. Bush's second term as president. A great deal was wrong with America then, and I thought the research on authoritarian personalities could explain a lot of it. Since then a new administration has been elected, and although it has had to deal with a very serious economic crisis brought on by others, it is taking steps to correct some of what is wrong.A Word From Dr. Bob Altemeyer on Donald Trump and Authoritarian Followers, 2 March 2016
Authoritarian followers in America today are tremendously energized by fear and anger. They're scared, and they want someone really strong and confident to protect them. It's a very natural, understandable reaction. As well they're intensely angry about the way their country is changing, and most pointedly furious with the Republican Party which has won many elections because of their support, and then utterly failed to "get things right again." So they feel betrayed, and that is a very powerful motivator.10 Preliminary Theses On Trump

Fascism and Democracy, an interview with Dylan Riley, August 19, 2016
Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were "authoritarian democrats."title is from Felix Guattari
