Disciplining people to submit is crucial for authoritarian rule. There are three mechanisms, three ideological state apparatuses in Althusser's terms. They are more powerful than the police and the army and far more effective at getting people tp submit to authoritarian leaders. They are the authoritarian family, authoritarian religion, and authoritarian education. They work together to teach the lines of dominance and subordination as natural. One obeys to consider oneself a "good boy, a good girl." They are the enemies of revolutionary transformation. This podcast explains how they work and what we can do to change them.
