As for  the oppressed becoming the oppressors; I doubt it.

How so? The Scots in the US are an example. As are the Jews who turned to  
Zionism after their experiences in Nazi Europe and helped colonise Palestine.  
How about the Puritans who fled religious persecution in England for America 
and  promptly set about massacring the natives?
History is littered with such examples. The convicts transported to  
Australia who massacred the aborigines throughout the 18th and 19th  centuries.
