Absolute power does not corrupt absolutely, absolute power attracts the corruptible.
And sometimes one finds themselves with power they neither wanted nor know what to do with — but they must now weld it the best that they are able.
” . . . and some have greatness thrust upon them.”
Contrary to Lord Acton’s dictum, power does not corrupt. What corrupts is immunity from the consequences of one’s acts.
…and some go to great lengths to try to avoid even what little accountability the law mandates.
Powerless corrupts. Absolute powerlessness corrupts absolutely.
That makes no sense.
I suspect it isn’t meant to. It falls under the class of rhetorical devices headed, ‘I know you are, but what am I?’
Absolut, vermouth, and a tiny onion is an Absolut Gibson.
