Another way to look at this is that the root of fear of freedom for some is because freedom gives no cover for the mind of one who believes they should have had more success. Indeed if one is free to succeed and doesn’t there is no place to hide in a free society. In a dictatorship where one simply does what one is told there is no such fear. It is the reason for those who love dictators and help to make them possible.

Also, along with an undeveloped “I” is an undeveloped intellect. Without some intellect there is only the childish ego to guide one. Thus the reason why more and more folks are referring to the Donald as the toddler president.
