If a rising leader claimed to be good, in a time whence being good was not valued consciously - and so had seemingly nothing to gain from it, but if that good were real, and therefore the people internally recognized that goodful truth, whom this leader represents; but the leader is not actually good.
Would it be better to support this leader, whose will will bring goodness to people, at the expense of one's pride and dignity? If his goodness is exposed as being phony, but nobody cares, because they assume this ungoodness is necessary for greater goodness; well, are they right? One might say: "no, of course you shouldn't support a hypocrite," and the other would say, "well yes he is flawed, but this is necessary." and even another would say, "he has no problems, he is winning and only you are upset because you are not winning as he is."
One aspect of it is the false belief of LOA. it's sorcery, it is "meme magic." it is also of certain philosophies, "master morality." the rejection of beautiful losing.
