We are all power hungry in one way or another. Whether its in sports, or whether its about running a country, we would kill for power and this is show clearly in Harry Potter as he has to kill Voldemort in order to get that power and control that was needed. In a letter written by Dumbledore in the story, he states that only the necessary amount of power must be used to achieve what we need, not more, and not less.
