What's a Duhring?

Re-copied to the list from Howard Brazee:

My basic political beliefs are:

1.  Power corrupts.

2.  People are comfortable with an authority to tell them how to behave 
and what is the right way of things.   Wrong is what makes people 

Political theories that don't recognize these are interesting, but 
fatally flawed.

But let's look at this in the context of a world where you *know* there 
are gods - whom you know are not omnipotent and omniscient.    
Dragaerans don't seem overly concerned with making the world right.   
They are more interested in being true to their natures while 
recognizing that others have different natures.
