Absolute addiction corrupts absolutely.
Lord Acton was wrong. Power does not tend to corrupt. Absolute power does not corrupt absolutely. We are to blame for our own corruption. Power simply provides us with the opportunity to bring our faults to light. A properly balanced person can handle absolute power. There are not too many of these persons among us. I do not claim to be one of them. Let’s stop blaming power. We must acknowledge our accountability. Let’s stop attributing our own inadequacies to the externals. The truth can set us free to make great strides in personal growth.
