    Well i believe that power will cause greed, it had happened all throughtout history, now though most people with power aren't bas, there are many examples of those who have commited crimes, in the conquest for power, like hitler for example, he wanted to wipe out an entire race of people, so he may create a new civilization, where he controls everything.

    it's not power...it's the person who can't control it. one has to have the experience of balacing power to avoid the greedness of it.

    I belive this is true and i think people should have an equal amount of power except one person that is sensible and choosen for good causes.
    Have you ever taught a class? When you get up in front of everyone and are the equivalent of a dictator to them, all that power makes you want to give a pop quiz . . . It's marvelous.

    Power corrupts. It's a fact of life. That's why the voting world has to be careful about who they elect to power.

    i agree power does create greed because if we didn't have power then were would the greed come from ? and also like every person should have a equal amount of power because no-one is better than anyone else .

    I think that claiming it automatically creates greed is a copout. It relives us of the responsibility of holding our public officials to standards or ourselves if we should find ourselves in a similar situation. Choice. Power nor money can remove it.

    They say absolute power corrupts absolutey. I think it's a common misconception that all power is evil. For some people, their wish for power stems from wanting to provide support for others, and make positive changes. There's another saying that goes "Greed is good', and this is also true. You could be a glutton for honesty, virtue, and kindness. You might be so greedy as to want more and more friends, and will do good things until you get them, thats not bad at all. I think power is fine, we all just need to be a little more responsible.

    Power in the wrong hands will lead to greed and misuse of their power. Not just one people should have too much power over things.

    To much power some what makes greed cause there must be some things in history that make power ok i think most poeple can be greed for power but not all. the more powerful you are you do get hungey for more but then again poeple are only human he and they cant resiet most things.
