Yeah this one is definitely up there. Not much is more authoritarian than not accepting people's feelings and emotions as valid when it can't be conveyed in theoretical proofs, from the academic elite to the emotionally abusive husband.

It's a problem DEEPLY ingrained in our civilization at this point too. :(

It is, but I also think it's something where improvement is genuinely being made. Even the most liberal feminism & identity politics been pushing ideas about accepting the experiences of others as valid. Unfortunately the rationalist brigade constantly tries to drag them back down to their pathetic legalism & objectivity.
