What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day?

Who is the smartest man alive, you may be wondering? Well, in 1844 it was Joseph Smith:
But I am learned, and know more than all the world put together. The Holy Ghost does, anyhow; and he is within me, and comprehends more than all the world; and I will associate myself with him.
—Joseph Smith, King Follett Discourse
