We have, I fear, confused power with greatness

The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

When the adults of a great nation feel long-term pessimism, it only makes matters worse when those in authority take actions that reveal their detachment from the concerns—even from the essential nature—of their fellow citizens. And it makes those citizens feel powerless.

Inner pessimism and powerlessness: That is a dangerous combination.

Peggy Noonan - Wall Street Journal

With great power comes great responsibility

We have, I fear, confused power with greatness
