Video: When you combine an unhappy group of people with a leader who is more than willing to feed and exploit their fear with wild speeches and rhetoric, things can go bad. When people in business and intellectuals want to be on the favourable side of public opinion, so they start doing things they don’t believe are right, things can get worse.
