'folie à plusieurs'

I finished gathering materials - enough to write a book - last night, in my sleep. I lectured on it in my dream, it was tight. A preliminary title for it might be "hey, that's not conservatism; it's authoritarianism and fascism, and these are pathological, not ideological." What happens in the Western world - in a representative democracy - when fascism in the form of 'folie à plusieurs' is framed as patriotism?
It's time to call out the impact of pathological thinking on our politics:  the bananas.
