Here's the paper, "Power and Hypocrisy," at this link:
Here are some interesting points made in the "General Discussion" of "Power and Hypocrisy":
* This means that people with power not only take what they want because they can do so unpunished, but also because they intuitively feel they are entitled to do so.
* Conversely, people who lack power not only fail to get what they need because they are disallowed to take it, but also because they intuitively feel they are not entitled to it.
* Further, we found these effects even after minimal, unaware lexical priming manipulations. This suggests that these inequality reinforcing processes may be at least partially automatic.
* Our last experiment, however, found that the spiral of inequality can be broken, if the illegitimacy of the power-distribution is revealed.
