Why does the authority take advantage of their power and mistreat the society?

How did I get to this question?

In history and modern times, it seems that the government/authority takes advantage of their power. This lets the authority to mistreat the people. This is the reason why revolutions are started by society, so i wonder, why does the authority of certain country take advantage of their power.
