"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely"...What is your view and why?
if absolute corrupt power puts lots of money in my bank account, pays my overdue and seriously in arrears bills and lastly stops the bank from taking my home which I mainly built myself, then I'm all for it.
Unfortunately, I'm very honest and all of the above is fantasy and wishful thinking. I think power and corruption go hand in hand and I have very little time or respect for most of those in power or positions they were given by the people because as soon as they are elected they seem to ignore the very people they pleaded with and begged to vote for them and work to their own agenda.
Cynical perhaps but I've only ever met one honest politician and his honesty cost him his position.
I'd love to see a lot of bankers going to jail over the recent world recession or as I like to think of it "The World's Governments theft of the peoples futures, pensions, dreams, finances and general well being",

It's funny but after all the crap the US armed forces went through over Abu Gharib and abusing suspected terrorists, it would seem that prisoner abuse is endemic. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090717/ap_ …...
