Made me laugh, you are just fed up, what if I were to tell you a tale.
Imagine a man whom was something else?
A man whom evil and hateful spirit's only intent upon gaining and magnifying there own power discovered was something else?.
They then tortured the man, like squeezing blood from a stone if you like so that the stress would unlock part of that power he had hidden within
him, then they showed him images in this case of looking out from inside a bamboo cage at drunken east Asian men poking them with stick's through the
bars and this pain and anger was then fueled and funneled toward one place and at one target, China.
Now this man then somehow manages to regain reason but the energy within him is overflowing having been released already so he has to do something,
he think's of all the innocent in China, the children, the kind people and yes he know's that there was plenty of scumbag's just like anywhere else so
he wrestles his power back down and lock's it away again fearing that he might harm them and not wanting to do so, but there is too much power so he
tried to feed it to the earth to stop it from harming anyone, to the planet itself and the energy and pain ease.
The man fall's unconscious and then into a sleep the delirium ending and wakes the following morning, later that day he hears of earthquake's shaking
China and injuring people taking many lives, the man is repentant and fears that he may have done that, fears that once again he may have become a
destroyer of world's.
Can you imagine the fear of holding such power, the burden and the urge to run from it, to hide it even from himself and to lock it away behind
wall's and fortresses and more wall's within his inner universe lest the monster should be unleashed and strike blindly harming the innocent once
And can you imagine the idiot's, the hateful and the angry whom would just want it, the little people that want to destroy and ruin rather than to
save, to do the work of there own enemy's for them and to burn the house they have to live in themselves down to the ground.
The Roman empire was a mighty empire built upon conquest, slavery, intrigue, treachery and exploitation, it was a thief that dressed itself in the
finery it looted from other cultures but in that respect it was no different to any other empire in history both before and after.
It differed in the size, the peace and the population it allowed to bloom under it's less than benign rule called the Pax Romana and it survived as
an empire long after Rome itself had fallen right up to the fall of Constantinople in fact.
It taught many lesson's, not all good and had AND has many student's once again not all good.
Remember this, it is easier to destroy than it is to build, a weak man can tear down what a strong man labor's to build.
Other than there destruction and the fact he had lot's of kid's what legacy did old Genghis really leave, his empire never lasted even a few hundred
years, the mongol dynasty he founded was short lived and his capital city of Xanadu was ill placed so after the mongol dynasty passed so too did it
abandoned and lost.
For all of it's evil's and on balance Rome was more evil than it was ever good it left a Legacy which enabled greater cultures to one day rise, they
may have not had it's grandeur but in every other way they surpassed it.
And in time they too will be gone, our lives are short, we die and the knowledge and lessons' we learn no matter how much we may want to we can never
pass to the younger generations that will replace us, we can only hope that they are intelligent enough to learn for themselves and that our mistakes
serve them as lesson's and road sign's for what to avoid BUT if we are an example of what they will do then unfortunately we tend to ignore those road
sign's those warning's from history.
Can you imagine the burden and the fear of having that much power that you, you could destroy entire world's, that there were those that would want
to use you as a beast of burden to carry out there will, to make themselves great by becoming parasites upon you, how much you would seek to lock that
power away, how much you would fear letting that almost uncontrollable energy to destroy and perhaps also to create out knowing that you yourself
lacked the wisdom to use it safely or rightly and even more fearing what other's would do to control your power for themselves by controlling you.
