Control freaks (9 April, 2023)
The apotheosis of the controlling mind is monstrous and terrifying.
– Stewart Stafford, American author
Control freaks traditionally tend to have a psychological need to be in charge of things and people — even circumstances that cannot be controlled.
The need for control, in extreme cases, stems from deeper psychological issues such as obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders or personality disorders. This aptly and amply describes the type of leaders we vote into power.
