People are People No Matter What
There are numerous personality tests that can classify individuals based on various common traits. Some people are more aggressive, some more analytical, some more emotional, etc. It occurs to me that personalities probably haven’t changed over the years. People from history were pretty much the same as the people of today.
So I have to wonder, who were those religious fanatics from mediaevel times that we’re always hearing about? You know, the ones that burnt witches at the stake, ran the Spanish Inquisition and used the church to acquire great wealth. Were they the most devout? The most pious?
I submit that they were exactly the same sort of individuals as the secular leaders we have today, stripped of their religious trappings, but with the same lust for power and privilege.
