I'd like to believe given Wealth and or influence I would change things for the better.
However the old adage that absolute power corrupts absolutely, I know this for myself to be true after a small bit of power I was given at School corrupted me to cheat for my own benefit, my ego. I hope now 22 years on I wouldn't be so corrupted by any power, I've never sought after it since even though I was given this position because of my trustworthy nature, which proved not to be as strong as believed.
One thing that cemented my awakening at the age of 19 was that we have to pay from water, the key to our survival.
I haven't paid in years to be fair, I'm on a shared supply of with the neighbours so knowing that I refuse to pay ( my small victory in this battle that is life)
If I ever fall into a bit of power again I strive to use it for good and not be corrupted by it. Thougg it is not something I want or will look for
