  •  Cult of Personality (0+ / 0-)

    Some people are loyal to a person rather than policies.  When their object of veneration disappoints in some way, they flip 180 and go from love to hate.  Meanwhile the other cultists sill on the pipe turn on the apostate with fury born of the same authoritarian-follower us-vs.-them paranoia, and another little nagging concern that tries to penetrate their bubble of cognitive dissonance. Inevitably diaries like this burp forth to strengthen faith and rouse the mob.
