Meh. I know what you mean, but it’s a matter of important degrees. Nobody in the US could get away with that. Not with a tape. There are more protections. You can never prevent the evil from attaining power, but you can make it difficult for them, you can make it difficult for them to abuse it in the public eye.

I’m pretty cynical, but I think that even with cynicism, the major change that the Enlightenment has brought is the modification of privilege.
