    When they use their power to harm you, you fight against the harm, but when they are mostly doing stuff for the good. You are disarmed. You relax. You let them gather power. You allow the precedents of empire and privilege to accumulate. You allow them to empower their friends. Yu let them roll back safeguards to power.
