More on power corrupting absolutely

Reflecting on my previous musing on abuse it becomes apparent that the individual perpetrators too  had real power over individual pupils which without proper checks and balances corrupted the perpetrators in Ireland over a past generation perhaps even  absolutely.
Checks and balances seem to be essential for all human activities which affect others.
Regulators in the City of  London have become more and more important as the cleverness of City financiers developed.  The activities of Charities in England and Wales are all the better for the checks and balances provided by the Charity Commission. British Members of Parliament have of late demonstrated the need for their rights to claim expenses to be subject to external regulation.
So too for some human structures within the Church on earth.
