P is for Power

A2Z2020For this year’s A to Z Challenge I’m going to attempt to post an old saying or adage each day of the month of April (except for Sundays). I’m going through the alphabet, with the first letter of the adage beginning with the first letter of the alphabet (A) and continuing for 26 adages in alphabetical order until I get through the entire alphabet by April 30 — from A to Z.

I don’t know if it can be done, but I’m going to give it the old college try. Here’s my April 18th adage and it starts with the letter P.

Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.

      I think it takes a big ego and a lot of narcissistic tendencies to run for office. And I think being corrupt may also factor into it.

    I think that when we down-talk our government (the concept of government even in a democracy/democratic republic) for decades, those attracted to the work see it not so much as a work of honor and service but a chance to exploit. Those who complain and malign, non-constructively, against government the most… elected the current bleepety-bleep who says he (or the office) has absolute power.
