28. Yes, I think that is a common thread endemic to the human psyche ... that

"Power, money, position equals corrupting influence ...." be it CEO's, Clergy, Politicians or other positions that allow massive influence and control over the flocks.

And what I've observed is there are not a small number of people that seem to like being controlled and browbeaten. Much of it is probably generational inheritance and conditioning for these behaviors.

And, as you aptly said, "Sin is the small stuff you don't sweat for these successful, superior people who have lost much of the central purpose of the job." ... for example, TV Evangelists that operate tax free as massive corporations lavishing themselves with wealth and the temples they build for themselves.
