\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ AUTHORITARIANISM

The roots of Authoritarianism are an inherent aspect and propensity of the facility of the achievement of objectives, as the conformance of present action, to models of expectation as standards, forms or rules. Objectives as alternatives to any given condition, are expectations concerning what the conditions of future states should be like such as preferences. Expectations of future states may be based on the preferences of present states or may be simply conjecture. Objectives which are the creation or maintenance of preferences, requires the conformance of action to produce, as the objective of a home run requires an exacting swing of the bat, or the car must driven in a specific manner to reach a destination. The accomplishment of an objective mandates action and behavior in a present circumstance to correspond with the requirements of the future objective, as a crop of vegetables in the fall demands plowing, planting and seeding in the spring. The objective dictates behavior in present and is the authority for that action. The objective is more widely construed than simply goals in the future, but is defined to mean all expectations of any future state, as one expects to eat at noon or take a vacation in the summer. Objectives in future that are adhered too, are Authority for activity and behavior in present circumstance.

Models of expectation are authorities as present or future states, in which the results of activity, behavior and action are to create, produce or maintain, as architecture was created in the likeness of the ancient Greek models. In a broader sense, societies and culture in general have specific models of expectation for the behavior and conduct of individuals. Models may be actual or conceptual.
