Quora.com today:

"If the nation doesn’t wake up then one possibility is that a group of
pathological individuals ends up in control, forming a ‘pathocracy’.
Psychopaths work their way to the top behind the scenes and coalesce
together, and the pathocracy reaches its final form and becomes
totalitarian. Fully-fledged or nearly fully-fledged pathocracies include
Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Pol Pot’s Cambodia and Mao’s China. This
is why all totalitarian states look the same behind their different
‘ideological masks’. "
