Power and control is harm.


Power and control is cowardice.


Power and control is fear.


Power and control stems from fear and insecurities and the desire to control those fears and insecurities through power or more specifically the abuse of power.



Many an outcome can be influenced and coerced, but to imagine one can totally control an outcome is to fall prey to grandiose thinking.0


It would be like thinking that by controlling a surfer on a surfboard or even all the surfers on their boards, you can control the ocean waves and how the surfers will ride the tides.


There is simply no way to control all the variables even if somehow you were able to brainwash all their minds.


Why? 


Because people must still exist within the confines of gravity- the laws of physics, economics and metaphysics and the like. 


Many in the thralls grandiose power and control will lie, cheat, defraud, exploit, manipulate, coerce, force, assault, puppeteer, enslave in order to get their way; all harmful in varying degrees of disrespect, dishonor, abuse and abuse of power.  


Most practicing power and control escalate their abusive tendencies until major crimes against humanity are committed.


Because total control is not achievable, the need becomes insatiable, even more so as focus of control becomes ever more detailed into the mundane or the shallow areas that are more measurable to control, but less substance and significant to the outcome of life. 


In other words, the grandiose abuser will be more focused on what the surfer will eat and how he or she will look, instead of the tides that will determine how the surfer will have to surf it.


The problem then becomes the gross underestimation of what will truly happen when the weather changes and the tides come in.


What will be the true consequences?  


It will certainly not be the ones given in lies and false predictions of the liars and frauds in game cheats and grandiose power and control.




Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
