27. Zealots
"They're ruthless, but they're ruthless in part because they do have genuine causes... which they will resort to any means to accomplish."

Zealots are the most dangerous people on the planet because they believe that they are right and everyone who does not believe as they do are wrong. The means do justify the ends to them. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot etc.
