Absolute power never corrupts.
Doubt is the reason for corruption of power.When one doubts his power
over his dominion he wishes to test the magnitude of his power.
Kids who burn ants with magnifying glasses, bosses who make
subordinates jump through endless hoops,police and militia who rob the
common man’s dignity,politicians who gamble on democracy,dictators who
commit genocide:they are all doubting their omnipotent status,checking
warily to see if they have in fact reached godhood- or absolute
power,and so they test the limits of their powers, and by doing so
they acknowledge their relative power and the lack of absoluteness.
Absolute power never needs to be tested.
It creates a painful paradoxical situation.
Nature abhors two things.One is vacuum, the other is a paradox.
In fact Absolute power can never be tested.
Think about it.
Can god create a stone that is too heavy to lift himself?
So absolute power never corrupts for it has no scope for testing it’s limits.
But does absolute power exist?
I believe it does.
Absolute power exists over oneself and the universe that he creates.
And that’s the only absolute power that exists.
We are Gods unto ourselves.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
