A delusion of a weak, easily-subdued mind, that believes there exists a person who has more rights than others, and thus has the ability to dictate what reality is and isn't, or should and shouldn't be.

98% of people believe in 'Authority', whether it be Authority through popularity, financial status, or PHDs earned after decades of blindly following a 'reality' that has been curated for you by others, who fallaciously claim to have Authority.

History, if accurate, has shown time and time again that those who follow the status quo (I.e the majority) are the ones that stop society from progressing and allow atrocities to be committed in the name of preserving a (flawed) paradigm.

Todd: It was going great until my authoritis came back.
Brook: That sucks.
