Sorry I just don't agree with that view of world history.

Although I have much respect (& to varying extents have been influenced by) for the men that you mentioned. The only thing I agree with here is that in ancient recorded times the tyranny cycle was more constant and the brief periods of liberty were very very infrequent. But it's not like faith brought about the world where people don't think of their leaders as gods.
