The Liberal Quote of the Day from Irvine Welsh (re: power & leprosy)

Read the whole interview of Irvine Welsh by Michael March in today's Guardian here: http://books.guardian.co.uk/news/articles/0,6109,1463350,00.html

MM: Is power the leprosy of the world?

IW: Yes. There is nothing good and honourable that cannot be destroyed, corrupted and warped by the pursuit of power. Every decent enterprise can end in tyranny and brutality if those in charge are allowed to pursue it.
