Absolute power corrupts absolutely, would you agree or disagree?
Specifically relating to world governments or leaders, once a party or individual rises to the top of the power structure will they predictably abuse that power?
Furthermore, if the party or leader attains power but doesn't use it in a way that helps the most people possible, does that constitute corruption in your mind?
In party politics, does political gridlock constitute a failure of leadership akin to corruption?
What do you think?
