Why not. Stalin tried to, Hitler tried to (probably more sincerely that Uncle Joe), even Peter Sutcliffe in his own particular way.

And so did Alexander Fleming, Florence Nightingale, Albert Einstein and Robert Peel. And millions more.

He makes a valid point.
They all thought they were making the world better, some doing so with widespread support, but they were all very wrong.
How is one to know that what one perceives is better is properly so?

Can I suggest that you add item no 2 to your bucket list: to acquire a moral compass.

When does stating a fact become a matter of morality?

Chapter 1 of how to win friends and influence people explains why even people with the sickest, most evil intentions by any reasonable measure, thought they were a decent bloke really. Its human nature - very few sane people will accept they are evil.

wtf is the point of an electric car if it costs more than the equivalent ICE car including its life time fuel consumption.
