GAWD you guys! Everyone loves the underdog, that is until he succeeds, and then he becomes Darth Vader to everyone. 

Every despot starts out at least thinking he is making the world a better place. But then, supposing you are the "benevolent dictator", what do you do with all the other guys who also want to make the world a better place, but their idea of better is the polar opposite of yours, and they are demonstrating (sometimes violently) outside your office building? Well yer gonna hafta round em up, which is going to piss off their friends and family, who heretofore may not have exactly been against you, but now they sure are! So you have more and more people who disagree with you, so you have to do something about them now. Before you know it the whole country is against you, and you were only trying to make things better! Oh the injustice! 

I'm just glad Steve Jobs is not trying to take over the world. (Is he?)
