Why do all the honest, decent, socialist presidents/leaders get assassinated/overthrown and replaced by scum?

Jacobo Arbenz Guzman, Patrice Lumumba, Daniel Ortega (though he's in power again) Salvador Allende, Thomas Sankara, Mohammed Mossagdh, Leon Trotsky, Che Guevara (the strict exception to the rule)--the list goes on and on.

    "There was no person more feared by the CIA than Che Guevara because he had the capacity and charisma necessary to direct the struggle against the political repression of the traditional hierarchies in power in the countries of Latin America."

    --- Philip Agee, CIA agent
