I mean it’s usually a given that Hitler was really charismatic. But it also seems like basically he was just saying stuff that a lot of people thought but didn’t get said. We certainly know that Europe had a HUUUUUGE streak of antisemitism and countries just naturally seem to breed large sections of the population who think anyone foreign is suspicious.
And Farage has also been termed charismatic, but when all’s said and done he only ever seems to have spouted out headlines and articles from the most popular tabloids, i.e. opinions that were already held by a large section of the population.
If someone is a really charismatic leader, surely they should be able to get the public to vote for FULL COMMUNISM even though no one really believes in that (or so it seems)?
