The Tyrant Gene

I propose that some people are born with a predilection to wanting to control other people. This belief that people are too stupid to live their own lives and make their own decisions and must be guided and controlled by other (less stupid?) people.

This feeling of false superiority is the cause of much suffering throughout human history. How many hundreds of millions have died and been enslaved because of this "tyrant gene"?

I should probably apply for a massive federal grant to study, isolate and cure this genetic defect. What do you think?

  1. read The Authoritarians. You will find your hunch quite correct. However, I don't think you'll like the rest of the results :(
