Ordinary people who are given great powers attempt to oppress others with the authority bestowed upon them; Or ordinary people in turn willingly bow down to the authority of those in power.

In countries such as Sri Lanka, which have emerged recently from conflict, it is common for politicians and those in power to misuse the authority they have been given to oppress the people or to further their own means. Given their extraordinary powers during deadly conflict, they remain above the measures in place that ensure accountability and transparency. Their continued impunity is made possible by their ability to terrorize the masses; the people won’t oppose them in fear of reprisals. This is especially evident in the North and East of Sri Lanka, the regions directly affected by three decades of war.
