Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Without fail, in every instance, petty or international, power has corrupted. We even live in perverse delusions of each having power, "demos cratos", power to the people, when the people have anything but.

As Charlie Chaplin famously said, "To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish."
