Here is a website that provides some context for Lee's statement.

http://www.theimaginativeconservative.org/2014/08/acton-lee-conversation-liberty.html

It links to two letters between Lee and Lord Acton. Acton has been credited with saying, and I'm paraphrasing, 'power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely'.
Pax, Amor, Libertas

What light is to the eyes, what air is to the lungs, what love is to the heart, Freedom is to the souls of humankind.
