In the event we're stuck with Wayne until a new mayor and city council are elected in a few short years, (yes, Ed, we ALL know you are running for Mayor) it behooves us to understand the Tyrant That Would Be Wayne. The following is taken from Archetype Tyrant, "Sixth Sense" by Stuart Wilde:
If you don't have a Ph.D. in psychology and lots of time to spare, stay away from tyrants. If you have to deal with tyrants, remember this: Even though they're desperately unhappy, they become arrogant and dogmatic through the exercise of their tyranny. You will rarely get a tyrant to see reason. They live in their own rabid empire. Tyrants like and expect abuse. "Plank on head" is the only language they understand. Don't negotiate, don't accommodate, and don't try to please them. The more you try to do for them, the more it affirms their power of manipulation. It's sad to say, but you should never cut the suckers any slack. It's bound to backfire.
