The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it.

H. L. Mencken
"The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve. This is true even of the pious brethren who carry the gospel to foreign parts."
By H.L. Mencken, a bit of a cynic, in Minority Report: H.L. Mencken’s Notebooks, 1956.
