Personality Predates Ideology - Brennan Lee Mulligan

This quote was added by slamuel
People are not motivated by ideological codes. People are motivated by impulse and construct ideological codes to justify and rationalize what they were already going to do. An old professor of mine had this great thing. He said, "On the level of individuals and civilizations, personality predates ideology. Meaning before you were a fascist, you were a bully."
