Authoritarianism is a form of social control characterized by strict obedience to the authority of a state, organization, or individual; the central authority figure often maintains and enforces control through the use of oppressive measures.[1]

There are two types of authoritarian followers, right wing and left-wing. Right wing followers advocate submission to traditional authorities, such as churches or other religious institutions, and the government. Left wing authoritarians are submissive to a radical leaders who seeks to overthrow the status quo.

A related concept is the so-called authoritarian personality (or character), a set of characteristics purported to predict antidemocratic or fascist leanings.
