ever wondered about authoritarians, tyrants, (eg trump, xi, duerte, putin, and friends) - and habits? #1
#habits, #habitat, and by extension - #habituation are linked to ghabh root. A condition, a give/take and hold?
As per masha gessen's study of #putin, https://www.newyorker.com/podcast/political-scene/masha-gessen-on-putins-russia-and-trumps-america - we get an idea of the need for tyrants to #normalise themselves by co-opting by force and violence others to follow.
Is it utterly misleading to say, #normalisation makes acts habitual, hence is an #habituation process?
