...Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” This famous quote by Lord Acton seems to be justified because absolute power’s end result is in the form of absolute corruption. Power has this tendency to bring about corruption because people misuse it for their own intentions and means. They tend to think less of the individuals within the society who take the brunt of lawlessness and corruption while are bent upon bringing profits for their own selves.

Kings had the authority when it comes to creating laws and policies, domestic and foreign, imposing tax, pass justice, and control the country’s administrative system. As it was believed that the king’s power was granted by God, it was assumed that they are governing the people according to the will of God and so... ...
