The Temptations of Power.
When people gain power they are subject to various temptations which result in evil in our world.
They can be tempted to profit at the expense of others, betray their neighbors, consider themselves superior, use propaganda and brainwashing techniques to control people, use violence and war to win, gloat, cheat, and justify inequality.
They are tempted to harden their hearts and take advantage of people less fortunate than themselves.
And this is what has happened in our world.
But they are motivated by fear.
Pray for them.
And forgive them.
They don't know what they are doing.
