From Shirley Bryant:

Re: Power promotes hypocrisy: study (Dec. 29): Those scientists performing this study should examine why people who are citizens of a democracy (or representative form of government) will accept behavior from their politicians--who are supposed to be hired civil servants expressing our will- more readily than those citizens of other forms of government who regularly overthrow governments or behead dictators or kick out a political party currently in control. Perhaps we U. S. citizens really believe ‘everything will change for the better after just one more election’?? If so, might the Netherlands study not really pertain to U. S. citizens with a powerless feeling?
