Den Politiska Maktens Frestelser

Via Henrik Alexanderssons blogg och Václav Havel får vi här lite reflektioner kring den politiska makten och hur det påverkar oss.

“I have never met a politician who could admit to the world, or even to himself, that he was running for office only because he wanted to affirm his own importance, or because he wanted to enjoy the perks that come with political power. On the contrary, we all repeat over and over that we care not about power as such but about certain general values. We say it is only our sense of responsibility to the community that compels us to take upon ourselves the burden of public office.”
