[kigtjave] Power corrupts

Some dismal hypotheses:

1. Power corrupts.
2. The corrupted people never thought it would happen to them. (It affects well meaning people.)
3. The corruption will defeat any and all safeguards (e.g., separation of powers, checks and balances).

I suspect it is a complicated phenomenon, operating in many different ways. Needs research. The world will be a very different place with full understanding of this phenomenon.
