: I'm not sure of the exact quotation, but it is someting similar to "every organization is brought down (or destroyed) by an excess of it's own first principle". Can anyone tell me who wrote (or said) this?
: Thank You
Lord Acton once said that every institution perishes by an excess of its own first principle.
