    because they lust for power and power, to be felt, has to hurt. So, people who are after power have to be mean. It goes with the territory. It isn't that power corrupts; the lust for power is evidence of corruption.

    Where does the corruption come from? My mother, I'd say was born that way. 80 years later she still related with some gusto that her mother complained about her kicking in the womb. Though she'd had one pregnancy herself, I don't think she ever registered what it was like. Clueless.
    Once one accepts that some humans are as amoral as mosquitos or gnats, it's much easier to deal with them. There are, actually, some things that cannot be changed, only restrained.
