 Anti-authoritarian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Anti-authoritarianism is opposition to authoritarianism, which is defined as "concentration of power in a leader or an elite not constitutionally responsible to the people" or the doctrine that advocates such absolutism in rule, as in autocracy, despotism, dictatorship, and totalitarianism.
Anti-authoritarian also refers to those who reject the authoritarian nature nation-states and of capitalism because of what they see as its coercive actions, top-down boss/worker relations, and exploitative nature.
Anti-authoritarian can also be another term for anarchist, or for those who agree with the anti-capitalist, non-hierarchial, and anti-statist ideals of anarchism, but reject the label anarchist.

 ANTI-AUTHORITARIANISM: AN INDICATOR OF PATHOLOGY
The descriptions of the authoritarian personality which were developed by Adorno, Frenkel-Brunswik, Levinson and Sanford in their 1950 report of the research arising out of studies of ethnocentrism, anti-semitism and conservatism carried strong evaluative suggestions concerning those who scored highly on the F-Scale (Potentiality for Fascism).
This evidence is held to support Rudin's argument that rational and irrational authoritarianism (as exemplified by the F-scale) are independent, and that pathology is related to rejection of the former as well as acceptance of the latter.
The entitlement of the Rudin negative scale to the description of "rational authoritarianism" therefore seems to rest on some empirical foundation, apart from the purely conceptual argument that it cannot be rational to reject all authority.

 Researchers Study Male Anti-Homosexual Attitudes
In addition, he observes that researchers have analyzed Right Wing Authoritarianism as a factor in anti-homosexual attitudes, with religious fundamentalism and Christian Orthodoxy as being closely associated with right-wing beliefs.
His purpose was to measure the Gender Belief System (GBS) and Right Wing Authoritarianism (RWA) as a source of anti-homosexual attitudes in these heterosexual males.
Right Wing Authoritarianism, says Wilkinson, is characterized by a demand that individuals submit to authorities and social norms, and involves hostility toward groups that refuse to conform to societal norms.

Isn't the very act of controlling authoritarianism in itself an authoritarian gesture" Altemeyer clearly has the best of intentions and seems to be a genuinely nice guy-- this dense work is lightened considerably by a friendly and colloquial tone.
Eight years (with four more to go) of conservatism, of the religious right, of burgeoning racism, homophobia and anti-Semitism, of occasional bizarre eruptions from groups like the Posse Comitatus, have given all of us a vision of a society populated by a few charismatic individuals and thousands of obedient ideologues.
How can we control authoritarianism in a democratic society?" He says that He can see "vast potential" for rightwing authoritarian rule in the United States and Canada.

 Asia Times - Asia's most trusted news source for the Middle East
These views are common in Iraq, where references to "al-Yahud", or "the Jews", are made everywhere and they demonstrate the degree to which the outside world is misunderstood and feared by Iraqis whose views were shaped by years of authoritarianism, control and fear, with little access to information not dictated by Ba'athist or religious sources.
In the Christian West, this led to anti-Semitism, the belief that Jews are a race or nation to be disparaged.
Judaism was a stain that could not be removed by mere conversion.

That is why it is only an assumption of anti-Soviet, anti-Communist and bourgeois ideologists that socialism would have survived if there would have been Bukharin in the Soviet Union, Tito in Yugoslavia and that the uncompromising course of Stalin caused the defeat of socialism towards the 90s.
Other bourgeois groups are needed to raise the banner of authoritarianism and dictatorship.
This whole process continued in the name of anti - Stalinism - attacking Stalin as leader of the party and the government in the most productive period in the history of the Soviet Union.

 Libertarian Socialism
The basic socialistic libertarian movement has it's roots at least as far back as the French Revolution of 1789 in the poor serfs who saw through the authoritarianism of the Jacobins (and the bourgeoisie in general) who had used these serfs to overthrow the first and second estate.
Since capitalism's early beginnings in Europe, and it's authoritarian trend of wage-slavery for the majority of people (working class) by a smaller, elite group (a ruling, or, capitalist class) who own the "means of production": machines, land, factories, there was a liberatory movement in response to capitalism known as "Socialism".
Libertarian Socialism recognizes that the concept of "property" (specifically, the means of production, factories, land used for profit, rented space) is theft and that in a truly libertarian society, the individual would be free of exploitation caused by the concentration of all means of wealth-making into the hands of an elite minority of capitalists.

SDO correlates with Right Wing Authoritarian and together they predict to varying degrees many forms of prejudicial attitudes, such as sexist, racist and anti-homosexual attitudes.
SDO is commonly deployed with the Right Wing Authoritarianism (RWA) scale.
Altemeyer's research suggested that high SDO scorers were competitive on a personal level (agreeing with items such as "Winning is more important than how you play the game") and were also quite Machiavellian (manipulative and amoral) agreeing with items such as "There really is no such thing as 'right and wrong'.

Efforts to explain virulent anti-Semitism focused on the concept of authoritarianism, and a measure of authoritarianism called the "F-scale" came to be perhaps the most used such instrument in all of personality research.
Authoritarianism was thought to be related to general prejudice and ethnocentrism as well as to certain lifestyles and belief systems.
The term authoritarianism became one of the most famous in social psychology through a huge research effort on the part of T. Adorno and others (1950) after World War II that focused on explaining how the German people could have allowed and participated in the Holocaust that killed over 6 million Jews.

His extensive chapter on the relationship between right-wing authoritarianism and religion eventually concludes that "authoritarians in my samples tend to be religious persons and vice versa." For Altemeyer, religious people are clearly the followers of Jimmy Swaggart, not the Catholic workers or disciples of Martin Luther King Jr.

 PoliticalJuice.com: Mormonism and Politics
Mormons in America made a significant swing to the Republican party during the 1960s and '70s, largely as a response to the growing issue of abortion and as a morally conservative response to the morally liberal, free-loving drug culture of the hippie/anti-war movement.
To unpack it, to demythologize it, to deconstruct it.
It is my intention to suggest that Mormons ought to at least think critically about their current political leanings and loyalties, by the light of their own Mormonism, rather than simply embracing a general conservatism based primarily on the two specific issues of abortion and gay marriage.

 Relationship between Christian Religion and anti-Semitism
Using the concept 'breadth of perspective' to explain the correlation between Christian religion and religious and secular anti-Semitism results in a much more parsimonious explanation than using localism, authoritarianism, and conformism separately.

That has been an historical downfall of radical social movements, as seen most tragically in Spain in the 1930s when the Popular Front ideology allowed Stalinists to come in the guise of anti-fascism while at the same time murdering many revolutionaries attempting to create a totally new society.
A growing debate in the anti-war movement today is about front groups--political organizations or "coalitions" that arise from other organizations, but with the relationship hidden.
This is done for many reasons, and they all reek of vanguardism, authoritarianism, and counter-revolution.

 Amazon.com: Vichy in the Tropics: Petain's National Revolution in Madagascar, Guadeloupe, and Indochina, 1940-44: Books: Eric T. Jennings
Jennings demonstrates the points made by Paxton, namely, that the Vichy government, in the metropole and in the colonies went beyond what the Germans required in terms of anti Semitism, ultra conservatism, authoritarianism and anti republicanism and formulated policies and practices that were anti Masonic, anti Communistic and ardently Catholic.
Prior to the coming of the Vichy government, colonial administrators, particulary in Guadeloupe advocated assimilation and officially per pounded ideas of "Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity." In Madagascar and Indochina the colonies could anticipate at best an association with France.
But at heart of the colonial empire, even before the Vichy government, was a belief in Social Darwinism that saw the indigenous people of the colonies as proper subjects for domination, not citizens of France.
