A warning too often ignored...

Lord Acton is the gentleman who gave us the dictum:
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Most people don't add the rest of the quote:
"Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority: still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority."
