Cynical Proverbs 7:11

"With great power comes great responsibility"
This, of course is the widely-known quote of the Spider-Man mythos (which you know, because if you ever seen the Peter Parker story in any media, you'll hear this little manta drilled into your mind ad nauseam.)

Which is weird because as this world has demonstrated time and again, the entire point of getting power is to insulate yourself against responsibility. Duh! Responsibility is for the little people. Power is the gated community designed to make sure responsibility gets arrested for trespassing if it gets anywhere in their realm. Geez, Spidey, maybe you should bitten by a bit of radioactive common-sense.*

*Calm down fanboys, I'm a Spider-Man enthusiast. Really.
