As we all have been taught, we know with enormous power comes lots of responsibility. And in many cases, we also witness lots of cruelty, some sadism, plenty of violence, a bit of delusion, and most definitely some sexual deviancy.
So when it comes to maintaining a very powerful position of extraordinary influence, it often looks as if a person needs to be insane to meet the job requirements of dictator. Not many of us would flourish in this sort of role of leadership, and most of us would probably be incompetent at the very best.

As a matter of fact, many rulers through history actually go mad with all that power.

Oh, there is no doubt that we sometimes vote somebody into office that is a bit eccentric or they might have some sexual appetite, and people might consider them to be an extremist.
