Trump, Nero, Hitler, Pol Pot, Amin… etc, etc, etc. Powerful people, yeah?
However, I’m not sure it’s about power’s inherent ability to corrupt. I believe it’s about the individual wielding the power.
What are the individual’s values, their resolve? How do they reign in their desires? What does the individual do to develop their inner strength? What is their relationship to fairness and justice? How does the individual’s character help or hinder when they’re faced with massive resources, and ridiculous power? How does the individual relate to their passions and emotions?
Yeah… I don’t think it’s power’s fault, kinda like a hammer or rifle.
It’s ours; the one wielding the power.
