You ask how could someone be so cruel, the answer is very simple: Easily.
Same goes for the other question about killing innocent people, simple answer again: Easily. Everyone so far as posted the exact reasons why it's so
easy for someone to do these things. We don't elect compassionate leaders, we go by how "cool" they seem, or what words they say to us. It's
really our fault that we allow this to go on, but they've done a pretty good job of making most blind to it. The lust for power, greed, control, all
of that stuff goes back into our past. We all know of various conquerors. Alexander, Genghis Khan, Hitler, the list is enormous. To be the ruler of
the world has always been the desire of all of the exteremely ambitious.
Even as we are taught history, these conquerors are revered. Their triumphs in battles, their achievements are celebrated. It's all a vicious cycle
that has even still around in this day in age. The methods are different, as are the weapons, technology, the clothing, the names, but really that
"ruling the world" or being on top of the world is still the biggest ambition for those that crave power. It's not even just world leaders that do
this, it is even in the workforce. Major corporations of course go in hand with the leaders of the country, but it's even in smaller jobs where
people would even betray their own friends or family members to get further in the company whether it's a management position or employee of the
month. If backstabbing is done on a small scale, imagine on a big scale. That's why these so called politicians are so corrupt, it's basically
impossible to achieve those positions honestly. I'm sure many of them started off with great intentions, but the ambition and the lust for more power
just overtook them.
