Default Does "absolute power corrupt absolutely"?

There an old axiom "absolute power corrupts absolutely"

Do you think most people can't handle having power?

I once worked with a girl who seemed very sweet and pleasant until she was promoted to supervisor, and then she became a real tyrant, reminding me of the "Nurse Rached" character in the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.

Psychologists say that people who are even slightly psychopathic should never be given a position of authority.

Do you think having power changes people?

complex question... its an "as above so below" kinda thing... examples for the affirmative abound...

from dictators to cult leaders to controlling nuts in a more intimate social groups like patients in a psychotherapy session... but then again maybe some examples for the negative are just being underrated by the media who always crave controversy...

having absolute power and being altruistic at the time to me feels like a myth...

Of course it does. But there's 2 sides to it.

Becoming a supervisor or boss of any sorts brings on new responsibilities and new problems. You no longer have to worry about just your work, you're now responsible for others'.

Being the cool guy at work is almost impossible when you're incharge because when sh*t goes down, ultimately, its on you.

Whenever there's a problem, the first question someone asks is "who's responsible for this"? Right?

A counter example to the OP would be Lee Kuan Yew. One case is enough to destroy the general statement. Exception to the rule is a contradiction.

i knew that was coming...

LKY's is just too crafty to make "corruption" look very subtle...

like how does over a million dollars every month as a salary legally obtained?
