One Reason Horrible People Gain Power

In my time at various higher education institutions, I observed that a great number of faculty members liked the idea of an asshole asskicker gaining power. The simple reason was that obviously there were people - other people of course - who needed to have their asses kicked. Of course the asskicker would not be kicking my ass, because my ass does not need to be kicked, but those other people, well, they deserve a good asskicking and who better to kick ass than a quality asskicker.

Needless to say it usually doesn't work out as planned. Put assholes in power and they're assholes to just about everyone.

Yes.

There has been several studies that show that people tend to think of narcissists as being better leaders than other people, even when their mental problems, which can be seen as assertive and dominating (asshole like)are almost always the worst possible thing for the group as a whole.
