Power Is “Neat”

 “Power corrupts. Absolute power is kind of neat.”

(A quote by John Lehman, from the book Superclass – The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making, by David Rothkoft, p.xxii, 2008.)

John F. Lehman, Jr.  is an American investment banker and writer who has served on the staff of Henry Kissinger and the National Security Council,  as Secretary of the Navy in the Reagan Administration, and was a member of the 9-11 Commission. He was a member of the Project for a New American Century, an ultra-consevative think-tank that included other notables such as Dick Chaney and Carl Rove.
