The Search for Lost Authority. The 1960s – Again
(Cyrille Offermans) The Low Countries – 2017, № 25, pp. 24-33

There is no need today for more flexibility, discontinuity and extravagance; there is, however, a need for non-paternalist forms of authority, based on a deep, confidence-inspiring knowledge of affairs and the power to delegate them to others.
