Please, gentle Eva,A cult of personality refers to massive adulation of a political or historical figure. The Other Wiki defines it as "when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized, heroic, and, at times god-like public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise." Often the subjects of cults of personality are treated as gods, held responsible for the good things affecting a country. The cult may often claim outlandish accomplishments for the subject in order to bolster their popularity. On the other hand, heroic stories about the subject's life may be endlessly repeated in order to reinforce the cult. A common feature of dictatorships such as Nazi Germany, North Korea, Peoples Republic of China and Stalinist Russia.
Will you bless a little child?
For I love you,
Tell Heaven I'm doing my best,
I'm praying for you,
Even though you're already blessed.
- Santa Evita, from Evita'' by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice
