Power Corrupts Absolutely

In an immoral society, it’s not that power is likely to corrupt, it’s that it tends to corrupt anyone with the slight amount of power.

When we look around the World and in our neighborhoods, we can see corruption and abuse everywhere. And it is not due because of poverty or some imaginary reason.  It is due to our societies becoming more and more immoral.

It is almost understandable that a poor person could become a thief. But when the thief kills for pleasure, we must ask our selves why?  In the US if a thief runs from police, it is assumed that Police will escalate.  A thief can grasp the term escalate. It means they will be killed because they ran. Yes, regardless of the crime, Police in the US will escalate until a death penalty is rendered. That too many officers go along with this right they where given, it begs to question if they have any humanity?

The justice system is also immoral, and I’ll give you an example of two old occurrences in the same State the same year:

  • A man was caught robing 5 banks (he was desperate to pay his bills and feed his family), he was sentenced for robbery with a weapon (even though he never used his weapon, and none know if it was loaded) in 5 counts.
  • 3 young men attacked an older man and beat him to death. They were sentenced to murder, etc. divided by 3.

The man that did the robberies was sentenced to more time than the 3 murderers.

Scams, schemes, legal theft is the norm. Lying to a customer to make the sale is the norm. Using innocent people to make a company’s books look better, by posting fake past dues and fees is the norm.

When the Love of Money and Power is the most important, how can a society be moral?

Look around the World (France). How many minions, dogs of the corrupt and powerful ones do not even flinch in abusing, beating, even killing someone that could be their grand-father.

Oh, don’t get me wrong there are still good people, even among the minions of the powerful, but they are too few to make the World a better place.

Matthew 19:24

And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. _ Jesus Christ

So what are people without power or money supposed to do?

Luke 22:36

Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. _ Jesus Christ

And Liberty will be lost

Even the United States that was (still 40 years ago) once a beacon of Liberty is becoming a Police State.

Liberty = Freedom + Morality
