"Absolute power corrupts even when exercised for humane purposes.
The benevolent despot who sees himself as a shepherd of the people
still demands from others the submissiveness of sheep. The taint
inherent in absolute power is not its inhumanity but its anti-humanity."

Eric Hoffer
(1902-1983) American author, philosopher, awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom
The Ordeal of Change (1963), Chapter 15
