I don't get why there's people who are more 'powerful' than others in this world.

I mean, don't those people have to sit down every once in a while and defecate like the rest of us? (or maybe not if you're an Alien/Hybrid or something)

I just don't get it.


Also, at the core of every being isn't there a soft spot? Aren't the 'evil' ones (ex. reptilians) doing what they do out of fear or for some kind of self gratification?
Can we compromise with them or something? Cause right now it's pretty much lose-lose. I thought they were smart...but I don't think they're thinking things through.



Anyone else agree on any of this?

It's a natural consequence of certain systems of flow. If you put a bunch of separate magnets in a box and shake the box around, eventually they'll all come together. In our system, power may be used to acquire more power, but there is a more or less finite amount of available power. People who don't care to hoard power, don't. People who do...do. And the more power they succeed in hoarding, the better they're able to hoard yet more power.

There are people who kill small animals because they enjoy it. And there are people who kill small animals because they taste good. And there are people who don't kill small animals because they find it distasteful to do so...but are happy allowing others to kill small animals on their behalf so they can eat them because they taste good.

Regardless of the reason, and whether or not you percieve them to be genuinely "evil," if you happen to be a small, tasty animal, it may be to your benefit to avoid those people.

People who have power use that power, for good or evil.

Certain individuals have a genetic need for control and influence(power). Some may be saintly and others may be Psychopaths.

Well in my experience very few people are totally evil, though evil is merely a perception of others and therefore subjective. You may actually be able to convince them to compromise but it would be very tricky to get talking to them in the first place as they will be biased against you.

Rambling on.

Wow, so much to say on the subject of power. Well, first you have to get past the good and evil thing. I'm going to keep it simple for people today. The only reason anyone has "power" is, because people are lazy/bellicose and do not know who they are. Trust me, if we didn't want someone to have power over us they wouldn't. I'm under no ones power and quite often do as I will. However, its my opinion that people under control are you're average non-thinkers. People who think for themselves are under no control, sure to interact with society unfortunately there are a couple of rules to follow, but relinquish no power. If and again its my opinion, that once people realize that power and control is an illusion and that you can control your destiny as you fit and no one can tell you otherwise, that power/control itself will dissipate. Either by force or peacefully. Freedom quite literally is no one infringing upon my free will and me not infringing on anyone elses.

Your trying to apply healthy thinking to A class of people in which some may be insane. Thinking rationally and reasoning isn't going to resolve in an positive way.
A control freak feels entitled to dictate to those perceived as less than.
They objectify them. They don't trust you because your not worthy of equality.
You are expected to do as they wish. You are not allowed to have free will.


A control freak that runs rampant in that thinking will so control another as to cause "it's" death. Then move on to the next object.

A control freak cannot be satiated.
