I am not sure there has ever been a more stunning display of Lord Acton's quote than the last few weeks. Perhaps the most disturbing trend is politicizing the issue of sexual misconduct. Is "My perv isn't as bad as your perv" really the level of our political discourse? I didn't think we could top 2016. But we did and not in a good way.
True. And as the quotation continues [with my edit]: "Great men [and women] are almost always bad [people], even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you superadd the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority."
