It seems that science has confirmed Lord Acton, and power corrupts -- or is it that corrupt sociopaths seek and obtain power, or perhaps some of each? Anyway, people who have power are reported to be less empathic than those who do not, and this at least may be traceable to specific neurons in the brain.

This is one reason, in my view, to keep government limited, and power divided, not that that's a perfect solution to all problems.
