Well, in all fairness, JFK wasn't exactly the most popular guy around at the time of his death, especially in Texas where he died. In fact he was
hated by a lot of people there. And yes, I mean a lot. It's only after his death though that his popularity started to really spiral out of control,
and even to this day in fact he's seen as one of the greatest President's who ever lived in the eyes of most. Would that have happened if he lived?
Almost certainly not.
In regards to the others, again, today they're seen as some of the greatest people who ever lived. Were they good people? In my opinion yes they
were. But, not to the almost god-like status they seem to have right now. It seems that whenever someone is cut down in their prime like these figures
have been, It's the norm to only remember the good times they had. Only look for the positives that they did and completely ignore any and all
negatives that they may have had.
That's perhaps a reason for why "Only the good guys get taken out"... We made them good in their demise. Just on ATS alone for an example and in
the aftermath of Colonel Gaddafi's assassination, I know at least I can remember that there were quite a few thread's from people aimed towards him
in the most positive light and completely refusing to acknowledge any negatives, one's which did exist - My point exactly. In a figure's demise
they're always going to be turned into the good guy. It's just the way thing's are.
And of course It's also worth pointing out that In at least 2, maybe 3 at a stretch, of those figures you highlighted there can be proven beyond
doubt, in my opinion anyway, to have died by more than a "Lone nut".
Just throwing out my 2 cents.
