Review - The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York by Robert A. Caro

"Power is not a bad thing. It is not a neutral thing, either. It is, first, in the Christian view, a good thing, a God-created thing.... Without power, there will be no glorious eternal reign of the one to whom all power on heaven and on earth will be given. Power brings good to others." - Mark Ward

I appreciate the spirit of Lord Acton's "power corrupts." He was focusing on how we observe the pattern. But I think he had it backwards: power doesn't corrupt people; people corrupt power.
