Agree. Those ( reminder: very public)examples of entirely nauseous behaviour are endemic, sadly.

I was going to have a mild quibble with the title, then the first coffee kicked in, and I thought to “take a quick look at the comments”.

Oh my word. I can’t support the brittle spite expressed there.

So, I think my fragile male ego will have to Take It On The Chin (TM) when it comes to the title.

My analysis?

Similar: a deep existential fear of seeming weak in front of an audience. “Never apologise; never explain” is the mantra. The paper Strong Man is everywhere still on the march, and it’s long been a product of our cultural lessons.
