I can respect that,

and you are right, people like to grab power and control others. Church history shows this as well as Western history. Power hungry assholes are everywhere. So are people who want to grab your liberties and make you a slave. I personally find answers to these problems in Reformed Christianity. But my faith also teaches me that the solution will not be found on earth. People will always be people. My hope is heaven.
