Power And Authority

And I have heard it said that power and authority breeds corruption. And I have seen it that this statement could be true; many times, many ways, many places, many organizations, many groups, many people and many individuals. And though the names may change, the story is always the same, power and authority breeds corruption. And there is usually some sort of money involved that breeds this corruption. And there is usually pen and paper involved whose power is the sword in corruption. And what exactly is corruption, and power and authority for what? And is it bureaucracies, cooked books, accounting schemes, money that disappears and more things gone astray that are passing me at the moment. And again, does Wikipedia have an entry for this. What would that Internet bible dictionary have to say about this. And in other thoughts, for what reason does the word lawyer sound like liar, or does it. And for some reason that Bible verse comes to mind again when I think of this phrase. "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." 1 Timothy 6:10
