Default Re: Does power corrupt a person?

Power or the quest for power can corrupt most people, just like money and the quest for money can corrupt most people. They are different faces of the same coin, usually one follows the other.

Corruption is the erosion of values, when you have power and/or money you are treated different.

Often a powerful person will enjoy the special way he is treated, grows to expect it, and then later demand it.
