I have no idea what makes you think Dukat ever had a conscience. The man was perfectly happy to send millions of people to their deaths and demand that they worship him for it. He's a classic sociopath and megalomaniac.

Gul Dukat came to Bajor (just going off the show) wanting to be the savior who made the occupation bearable for the Bajorans,
Complete bullshit. This is just the rhetoric he uses to justify his crimes to others. Why on Earth would you take his account of his motives as accurate? Would you trust Adolf Eichmann to reliably explain his motives?
