'Liberalism' to authoritarianism in three easy steps

This pattern is repeated so frequently that I sometimes wonder whether it is simple stupidity
or something more malign;

1. Attack the values, taboos, and traditions through which society self regulates -
if those have an institutional embodiment, target that with special vigour

2. Watch things fall apart

3. Impose laws to contain the situation you have created
