My dear,

Yes, power corrupts.

Absolute power is kind of neat though.

Wouldn’t it be fun to have the power to govern everything and everyone in the world to do your bidding? Wouldn’t it be cool to control their hopes and dreams? To dictate how the world looks? To control the future of everything in your bare hands?

Wait, a minute. Doesn’t that mean that everything would thus be your doing… and your fault? Wouldn’t that mean that all the good, and the bad, would be upon your shoulders?

… Hmm, on second thought. Let’s forget about absolute power. Too much responsibility if you know what I mean.

Falsely yours,
