Why Are Powerful People So Terrible?

A new book: ‘Corruptible‘ by Brian Klaas

I just picked up Corruptible: Who Gets Power and How It Changes Us by Brian Klaas, a professor of global politics at University College London. He devoted his new book to four questions:

“First, do worse people get power? Second, does power make people worse? Third, why do we let people control us who clearly have no business being in control? Fourth, how can we ensure that incorruptible people get into power and wield it justly?”
