I think that’s putting it mildly, but the comment is good in noting that the facts show wickedness, not the best desires or guidance of mankind from those in power.

From here.

“The world is a wicked place. Most leaders — whether they profess Communism, Islamism, Transnationalism or any other ‘ism’ — are really in it for themselves. But they attain it by weaving ropes made from the dreams of ordinary people, whom they persuade to loop around their wrists. Only when the civilians awaken do they feel the pinch but by then it’s too late.”

Read the rest.  I like his notation of the founders being cynics.  They recognized the character of man, and designed the original government accordingly. This comment describes it well.
