The politician is an acrobat who says one thing and does another. The people who are attracted to positions of great power are never to be trusted. The State is a wretched institution that encourages iniquity and predation. Everything promised by a politician is either a lie or is delivered by the barrel of a gun. There is no such thing as a philosopher king or benevolent ruler. Such myths must be relegated to the fairy tale books. Stop putting your faith in political sociopaths and predators! It is not only that power corrupts, but that it attracts the vile and scum among us. It is not that some are unfit to rule. All are unfit to rule!
