Theoretically, you are against abuse of power, especially if that power has at some point of time been used against you, you have experienced it. Theoretically. If the tables were turned, I'm willing to bet my bottom that you would abuse that power too, no matter what has been said before. Even if you do not go the extent of abusing, you would atleast use the power to your advantage. Practising your preachings! Ah, how tough it is, to put your money where your mouth is.
