Nonsense driven by lack of expected correlation so Wilson dismisses it out of hand. Very much like global warming nuts.
I am so glad this author identified understandable examples of liberal authoritarianism.
Usually, the accusation is that all conservatives are accused of authoritarianism, and that leftist is by definition NOT. To show that political leanings are separate from authoritarianism, we can now remind people that left vs. right isn’t always extremes, and there are extremists of both sides.
There are leftist Nazis (authoritarians) who are willing to kill people to save lab rats and destroy property in the name of fairness. Anti-smoking Nazis are a more moderated version of this.
Fortunately, the leftist authoritarians are breeding at a much lower rate than the rest of us. And if their traits are genetically based, we’ll see far fewer of them in the future.
