@edgarblythe,

@cicerone imposter,
It wasn't a series of rhetorical questions, it was a quotation from Tony Benn where he specifically mentioned powerful men like Stalin, Hitler and Rupert Murdoch.

I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity.
Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.

“Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are
presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new
evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is
extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it
is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize,
ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.”
― Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks

@edgarblythe,
That is very true. We can observe that even in our own family and friends. I don't know what happened to me, because I was raised in the same household as my siblings, but I'm the only atheist amongst christians married to christians. I married a buddhist. My mother was not happy when I married my wife in the buddhist church in San Francisco. Not a smile. That was some 56 years ago, and I still think about the time I spent in the US Air Force from 1955 to 1959. I've lived in more different places than any of my family members. I was thinking about this subject a few days ago, and tried to remember where I have lived. Here's the list I remember, but not necessarily in chronological order, because I've lived in Sacramento Oakland and Chicago at several different times. Sacramento, Tule Lake Concentration Camp during WWII, Sacramento, Oakland, Sacramento, Travis AFB, Ben Guerir AFB (Morocco), Walker AFB NM, Chicago, Sacramento, Oakland, Berkeley, Fremont, Naperville IL, and Sunnyvale. I know some people in Sacramento who never left there except for the time during WWII when we were sent to concentration camp. I think I've done more traveling than most, because I have traveled to 88 countries.

@cicerone imposter,
I came from southern conservative roots and am the only one of my blood kin to be a liberal. I don't even look like any of them, unless you figure in my children. Being raised in California made no difference, because our neighbors were also transplanted Okies. I'm just lucky.
