The author Stan Lee teaches us the moral in the Spiderman series, "With great power comes great responsibility."
While I have not been able to find any modern origin to the phrase "With great power comes great responsibility," variations on the similar phrase “To whom much is given, much is expected” have been used often throughout history.
Some folks believe the thoughts on power and responsibilitiy are based on the biblical quote of Jesus of Nazareth. In the Gospel According to Luke, Luke records Jesus as saying, "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." (Luke 12:48).
I have often used the line "With great power comes great responsibility" in discussing technology in general, and the internet in particular. Regardless of the origin, it is a powerful phrase.
