To be candid I was looking for a quotation for the Conservative History blog. Naturally, I looked up the man who was possibly the greatest of the conservative historians: Lord Acton. Having gone through all the permutations of “power corrupts” or “tends to corrupt”, I found one that suits the theme of this blog admirably:
“The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern.”How could one disagree?
