Of Course

Breda O’Brien:

The German sociologist, Max Weber, defined charisma as “a certain quality of an individual personality by virtue of which he is set apart from ordinary men and treated as endowed with supernatural or exceptional powers or qualities”. Of course, he used it to describe that ultimate charismatic leader, who inspired millions to follow him over the brink – Adolf Hitler.

That was damn impressive of Weber, seeing as he died -of course- in 1920 when Hitler was virtually unknown.
