Some social movements rise from the bottom through virtue and attain power.
Power attracts the corrupt, the social status maximizing psychopaths.
Psychopaths defile all they touch and negate virtue, while still using the
virtuous language the movement used before it was corrupted. They demand
respect but being corrupt the only way they can get it is through the use
of power. Corrupt power breeds contempt and eventually a new social
movement rises to challenge power through virtue.

So the psychopath-infested Mother Church and the King were challenged and
deposed by the Philosophes and the freethinkers, only for the next
generations of psychopaths to crowd out the Progressives and bring a new
flavor of corruption to the body politic. Eventually the empty skin-suit of
former leftist virtue will burn off, leaving the diseased and bloated flesh
for all to see, until a new social movement sweeps corruption out the halls
of power.

The cycle continues.
