David Brooks is but a lamb in search of a powerful shepherd

Reason and Radley Balko take down a particularly authoritarian David Brooks column that ends with this bit:
To have good leaders you have to have good followers — able to recognize just authority, admire it, be grateful for it and emulate it.
I have this vague memory that we learned something about the downside of blindly following authority in the last century.

This column is, of course, one more example of why I am not a republican.
