• “Sir, there are two passions which have a powerful influence in the affairs of men . . . ambition and avarice — the love of power and the love of money . . . When united . . . they have . . . the most violent effects. Place before the eyes of such men a post of honor, that shall, at the same time, be a place of profit, and they will move heaven and earth to obtain it …” ~Benjamin Franklin, address at the Constitutional Convention titled “Dangers of a Salaried Bureaucracy,” June 2, 1787
