The Republican party is largely made up of people who believe that humans are sinful and in need of correction by establishments of religion and, if that does not work, then the use of force must be called on and that involves the state. Where does this preconceived notion/prejudice come from? It is necessary to justify ordering other people around. And ordering other people around is a necessity for people who can do nothing for themselves. In other words, authoritarianism is the incompetents’ default.
