You can read the whole sordid back story here at Legal Insurrection’s post:

Added: some thoughts on the collectivist’s worshipful groupthink:

Hannah Arendt’s Warning: the Violence of Hive-Mindedness, Groupthink

And some words of Roger Berkowitz, regarding Hanna Arendt’s understanding of controlled groupthink:  They take pride not only in their dutifulness, but also in their initiative and support for carrying out the goals of the regime.”
