The following is Part 2 of an excerpt from Corey Robin's book "The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Sarah Palin." You can find Part 1 here. http://coreyrobin.com/2012/04/22/protocols-of-machismo-on-the-fetish-of-national-security-part-i/

This is a long but very interesting article. IMHO.

1. Third time around for this discovery...

 

I think one of the reasons behaviorism and Taylorism replaced the first wave of psychology following Freud was that this study was getting too close to understanding the psychology of fascism. Then, again, psychology after WWII was moving in the same direction through the fifties through the seventies, and was then replaced by pharmaceutical psychiatry. Now, neurobiologists are making the same discoveries yet again. We'll see how it fares this time around...
