Dark Charisma – Veneer of Dictators

I recently watched the Dark Charisma of Adolf Hitler. Fascinating and disturbing. On film and in real life I saw my share of this brand of charisma, Sukarno, Mao Tze Tung, by force of voice, show of strength, flaunting the halo of saviour while fomenting hatred. By now people should know how to strip these embellishments down to the bare bones and see the human flaws and ugliness beneath the veneer. I doubt it. A vehement voice proclaiming promises of gold and glory and people will flock to it in droves.
