Power & Liberty

I suppose that it is the innate nature of many, especially those who are in positions of authority (or who aspire to authority), to confuse the wielding of power with the preservation of liberty.
"...We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion..." - Joseph Smith.
