Tonight on his Fox News program, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker talks about the overreaching power that that some politicians are exercising over their subjects during this COVID-19 pandemic. He begins:
The problem with assessing political candidates is you never really know what they’re like until they get a hold of power, and by then of course it’s too late. The decent ones wield power with
restraint and humility. They understand the limits of their own wisdom, human wisdom. They also understand the inevitability of unintended consequences which are the rule. They know they won’t be in charge forever, and so they tread lightly.
But the bad ones, they go crazy, and the more power they get, the crazier they go. Power is the drug they’ve been searching for. It’s why they went into politics in the first place, not to help you or their fellow citizens, or to improve our society, but to fill the empty space inside themselves. These are profoundly damaged people. Not single one of them has a functional relationship with their fathers, not one unfortunately. People like that run a lot of this country right now, they’ve never had more power at any time in our history.
