If a saint takes on the downside so others can have the upside, this man was fairly saint-like, taking much of the downside that comes with being an unapologetic prophet, with a terrible, non-stop travel schedule and a willingness to put himself out there for what he believed.
It shouldn't surprise you that this man made a lot of enemies. In fact most of his enemies only really agreed on one thing - how much they disliked this guy. When those enemies made their move the man's friends and followers abandoned him. Worst of all, he didn't end up saving the thing he loved.
In the end the man died a brutal, public death all alone.
