Power

Today as I searched out the latest on ISIS I came upon a linked article dated June 11, 2015 that repeats that axiom of recent history “Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely” expressing a belief that scarcely anyone with a grade eight education would think of challenging: it’s everywhere in the air on the streets and of course in the media. Mr. Acton, a historian and member of the British House of Lords voiced this view of power in the Victorian Era as the 19th met the 20th century about the time when Friedrich Nietzsche a German philologist promulgated in all his works the view that every living entity strives in their every action to express “the will to power”.
