"Fanatics are picturesque; mankind would rather see gestures than listen to reason."
19th century German - Swiss philosopher
I don't know that we knowingly choose, or prefer, to watch fanatical, managerial behavior.
Demonstrative managers, whether or not they warrant watching, naturally catch our attention, but only in a way similar to when we drive by an accident.
We may be compelled to watch but that does not mean we condone.
Make sure you warrant being watched.
