One less-noticed abuse of power occurs when some allow themselves to be intimidated or blinded by the persuasive skills and domineering sophistry of others. We have seen it on a gross scale in the consequences of the blood-drenched dictators of World War II. Surely, "when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn" (Proverbs 29:2). Being taken in also occurs subtly and in small ways, too, whereby we see how those whose thirst for dominion exceeds their regard for others, whom they use repetitively and unapologetically.
