Read about the Stanford Prison Study and consider, does it remind you of any dynamic in our recent news? (The link I posted is to an article at the Britannica; a web search will turn up many more references.)

I would argue that it exemplifies why the Founders placed a high value on “checks and balances” in governance and why it is important to respect the rights of the disadvantaged on par with the rights of the advantaged.

As for figures in the news, I leads me to think particularly of the antics of two governors who have recently been in the news for what in the old days would have been called “transportation.”
