When was the last time you were drunk with power? Don't feel bad. I'm pretty sure its been a while for me too. That's the problem with life. Power is simultaneously inhuman and craved. If you are one of the few who have power, congratulations. Of course, that congratulations from me, i.e. the powerless, is pointless. Who needs to patted on the back by somone lesser than he? Or I guess I should include she. Why not be politically correct in a world of political incorrectness? Thankfully, those with power really only have it because they can manipulate masses of people. The funny thing about that power, it that it really isn't power. It's just an illusion. The illusion of control that is. And control is always an illusion. We have no control over anything. Do you really think that you can control two tons of metal traveling at 70 miles per hour? Go outside, and try, just try to pick up your car. Go ahead, I'll wait. There's a good chance that none of you could do it. You know why? Lack of power. You don't have the power to control your car. Sure you can get in, start it up and then take off, but you really don't have any control over it. All you can do is manipulate the forces at work on it, and even then, its an extremely crude form of manipulation. All it takes is a phone ring, a loss of the present and you and that ton of car will soon be hurtling (wait for it) out of control down the highway to certain injury or death. Why you ask? Because control, my dear friends, is an illusion.
Not a new concept.
