Quote, Unquote: Dune•ology

All governments suffer a recurring problem: power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts, but that power is a magnet to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted.

— Frank Herbert, Dune

      It’s a quote from DUNE, by Frank Herbert. That man must have had a crystal ball, if you read that book in light of what is happening today, politically.

  1. What a quote! It sort of remind me of the chicken and egg dilemma- love it!
