Author(s)Jacques Ellul

Date publishedSummer 1979
Summary text/ abstractThe first thing we must realize is that the lust for power is not purely subjective. Neither is it a wholly moral nor psychological nor sociological matter: the desire to exploit and dominate others is not peculiar to one category or class (be they the wicked, bourgeoisie, capitalists, or imperialists). Such a view misses the point entirely. In fact the whole matter of lust for power revolves about the union and the interpenetration of objective systems, the accumulation of means whose very power is the logic of the means themselves. At the same time of course it includes the people who make up the system and acquire a subjective or class-based lust for power by the system or its methods.
