In clashes of culture, in clashes of idea, in clashes of venality, authoritarianism is a comfort to many.

In clashes of culture, in clashes of idea, in clashes of venality, authoritarianism is a comfort to many.

Messy worlds always call for the rise and hope of the authoritarian.  Struggles demand order and order comes only when stasis can be reached by some means of an acceptable balance of interests in a given society.  Chaos, threats to established mores, distrust of present power structure, legitimacy of present power structures, aims of present power structures all push for action, retaliation, desired order flowing from desired necessary power.

All power vacuums invite challenges.  Systems who can be open to challenge are wary of any openings to shared power or diminished power.  Conflict breeds lack of order, danger.

Be it here at home, be it in a different world, authoritarianism is always lurking, is always an antidote to uncertainty, lack of acceptable structure.

In clashes of culture, in clashes of idea, in clashes of venality, authoritarianism is a comfort to many.
