I don't know, I think Gideon's family was already messed up before he found the second journal.

You make a fine point, If Gideon made a threat using supernatural abilities that would imply the power corrupted him, but he threatened bud by saying "I can buy and sell you old man!!!" showing he likely pays the bills(brings in money to pay the bills) so bud and his mom are likely complicit just to keep their income stable.

To be fair, Dipper has invited Mabel to join him plenty of times.

They thought Bill Cipher was the villain. But the real villain was the thing that brought him into this world. A Journal. (Because Gideon couldn't've done it if the journal wasn't there.)

No, they ruined their own lives.

Well, I guess, but if Ford had never created the journals, nothing would have happened to ruin everyone's lives.

That's like saying "Everyone whose been shot died because of the person who invented guns". The journals were instruments of research and occasional use as a diary. Stanford is a scientist. He made the tools and he studied Gravity Falls. In turn, he created weapons and defenses. I hardly think Stanford thought to himself while writing the journals: "I sure hope some people come across these and use them for mass destruction!" He was most likely thinking along the lines of being an esteemed scientist and having his name known everywhere by everyone.
He created those journals for his own sake. Because of who he trusted, he ruined his own life and ended up dragging Stanley with him. He hid the journals to keep the world safe and instead two kids stumbled across them. Gideon and Dipper both found the journals. While Gideon was using it for mass destruction, Dipper was using it as intended: an instrument of research. In the process, Gideon tore apart his family and Dipper started going down the same road to paranoid insanity as Stanford did.
If anything is to be gleaned from this, it's that knowledge is, in it's very definition, power, but is not moral nor immoral. It's the user that makes it so.

And the saddest thing? The last page of the real-life Journal 3 was written after Weirdmaggdon. Meaning the journals were repaired. After all that...
