In that case I agree with you, but this quote doesn't lead one to suppose you actually meant that, not even within the bounds of charity.

But yes, and also to isabitofaplonker , it seems to be the case that the reason those who are attracted to power tend to be those who misuse it is that they are showing their true colors.

I'm going even further by suggesting that the nature of "power" is itself evil whenever it is possible, and however and wherever it is possible, that it can be divorced from the proper intentions. If it is even possible to disguise or subdue the appearance of malintent, then it can only be a problem if such a ruse leads to an opportunity to abuse power once it is had. And that is a problem with power ipso facto, it is a prima facie problem with power itself, since it happens to be an avenue through which evil can manifest.

This would not be arguable in universes where such power was checked by a moral force already, since there would never be any evidence that it could manifest. By definition in those cases "evil has no power", since power is always refuses their evil use. In actuality, I could care less about the term "evil" since what it signifies would never actually exist.

But since we live in a universe where it does, that means that the superuniverses where it doesn't could have, but at least it is contained (for now) in universes where it has manifested. This shows immediately that it wasn't checked by a moral force, and so it is a domain of existence where moral power (Goodness) does not actually exert itself (where it is proven that evil was able to). Or else, that such power was insufficient.

This is an interesting back channel into the discussion of the Problem of Evil, but coming at it from Lord Acton's religiously neutral statement (or at least as it is used by people who quote it, as if it were a fact of the universe with or without moral agency above its material forms).

Corrupted or simply showing their true colours?
pic unrelated
#194 - marcury (11/05/2014) [-]
Implying that people who attain power and become evil were already evil and hiding it? That could be true.
User avatar #109 - luciferusmaximus (11/05/2014) [-]
Yes, but those who are attracted to power are also attracted to power as a means to the other things which they also want, so this point is just moot.
#195 - marcury (11/05/2014) [-]
My point was people who want power tend to be those who misuse it, and those who don't want it, don't tend to misuse it when they get it. Of course people who go into law enforcement are choosing to do so, and so its not surprising that we should find so many corrupt policemen.
