Bad Leader Danger

Really bad leaders can do really bad things. Really bad followers can do the same. Really bad followers can enable really bad leaders to do really bad things.

Adolf Hitler is an historical example. If he was going to lose the war and be pushed from power, he would have Germany lie in ruins. His followers went along – they aided and abetted his destruction of their country.

Bashar al-Assad is a contemporaneous example. If he was going to lose control and be pushed from power, he would have Syria lie in ruins. His followers went along – they aided and abetted his destruction of their country.  

Any potential parallels come to mind?
