... the problem arises when one's words are significantly divergent from one's actions... if the space between the two is too wide, pathology is born both on an individual and collective level.   This is the space of the birthplace of neuroses that can grow into insanity. It is the seedbed of propaganda and tyranny... not to mention good old-fashioned lies.  Add charisma to the picture, the ability to convince others and one's own conviction that the wide space between one's words and deeds is non-existent, and what do you get? Manipulative anti-social dystopia or serious personality disorder…. a collective ruled by the insane.
