I am in the middle of reading a book on the authoritarian personality, available as a download from the author at http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~altemey/

It's like a series of lectures from someone who knows how to keep the students interested: pacey, funny, interesting.

And scary as all hell.

I know a couple of people who fit his description of the authoritarian personality. The double standards, the compartment thinking, the following aurthority. The book's skewed somewhat towards the US/Canadian end of things as the author's been studying this there all his academic life but the theory travels.

I highly recommend it, as it covers a lot of the rage one sees on the net.
