Are we authoritarian people? People who are authoritarian leaders make a web of deceit.
My way or the highway
People who are authoritarian can never be questioned - they blame you for everything, they say that what they are telling you is the correct way and what you hear from anybody else is wrong. If you question their authority, you are no longer allowed into their inner circle and are not allowed to play. If you don't play by their rules, you cannot be their friend anymore.
