“It has often been said that power corrupts. But it is perhaps equally important to realize that weakness, too, corrupts. Power  corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. Hatred, malice, rudeness,  intolerance, and suspicion are the faults of weakness. The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from their sense of  inadequacy and impotence. We cannot win the weak by sharing our wealth with  them. They feel our generosity as oppression.”

— Eric Hoffer
