Power, especially absolute or unchecked power, corrupts all

forms of government, because all governments are run by human

beings, who are inherently flawed and will naturally try to

arrogate more power to themselves, even if they believe they are

serving the people and the greater good. Communism, either as an

economic model or a system of government, is inherently flawed in

ways that have little to do with the exercise of power.
