(http://phrases.org.uk/meanings/absolute-power-corrupts-absolutely.html) "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men."  Great examples of this are Golding's Lord of the Flies and world history. I also love "Operation Stingray" posted in /r/nosleep (http://www.reddit.com/r/nosleep/comments/1sxtd1/operation_stingray_is_in_effect_god_help_us/).
