Power leads to corruption, absolute power to absolute corruption.
The more you're corrupt the less insane you are, which means in the few moments after absolute power, You're absolutely insane.
Idiots in corruption turn to insanity and chaos, Geniuses in corruption turn to torment and peace.
You're not the horrible person The power is.
When out of power, your enemies become your allies.
Absolute power can lead an idiot into one of the two: Insanity; Intelligence; Or the optional third... Both. Which is bad, Horrifying, actually.
Lots of power and lack of control mean self destruction You have the choice to change the whole world from one corrupt leader to one new innocent leader Do you have power? No. You're powerless And if you pick the new one you might aswell throw yourself into a pit due to your intellect Innocence and corruption corrupt more than plain corruption That power of changing the world is the same as the power to commit suicide.
The more someone doesn't want power but gets it. The less they get corrupted, But I didn't say they never got corrupted in any way. Nobody escapes corruption.
Money is the current religion and gods of whom got their hearts blackened and greened by money, greed and corruption. Rackets, threats, ransoms and such, it's impossible to rescue someone from "The Greed's Grip" without showing them money, is just earthly gain.
Greedy, corrupt and most importantly and dangerously, idiots with money and power, are the source of dread and misery. Humans are not what they were supposed to be anymore.
Give the power to an idiot, you are doomed to fall.
Give the power to a cunning man, you personally are doomed, but he will live the time of his life.
Give the power to someone incompetent, they will make a dreadful hash of it.
Look for the best: To befriend, to authorize, to trust and to love even.
You can only win against the blackening if you have a brain that is not deluded.
Resistance is NOT futile if it has a backup as strong as "Will".
