well known for thousands of years.  If only no one were ever to acquire material power of others!  But to the human being who has faith in some force that holds dominion over all of us, and who is therefore conscious of his own limitations, power is not necessarily fatal.  For those however, who are unaware of any higher sphere, it is a deadly poison.  For them there is no antidote.”  – Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, “The Gulag Archipelago” p. 147.
