    Re: Too much Power Creates Greed?

    I agree wit ur point Arrianna, it does depend on the person. Yet I've found that a Republic can also b a double-edged sword. Whenever u add people who want ta go inta politics as a career, ur openin' the door for corruption. There r many career politicians here in the U.S that r more concerned wit advancin' their careers than actually helpin' this country wit the problems that it faces. The U.S is headin' down the same path that the Roman Republic was headin' down thousands of years ago, it's our responsiblity ta make sure that doesn' happen. I'm not fond of career politicians, not that there aren' any good ones, but it's jus' that there r too many that r too concerned wit their careers. I feel that the words politics and career shouldn' b mixed together, they make for poor bedfellows. I believe that Ancient Athens had the correct ideal form of government, one in which the people had more control.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    Re: Too much Power Creates Greed?

    Daa! Of course power creates greed- people always want more, it will never be enough for us- in all ways.
    Of course it makes us create wonders- cars, high houses, planes and what else not, but with what cost? And how long can this go on? We're using our resourses too much already...

    It's the same with power- give a man power and, if he's smart enough, he'll make this life better for as all, but he'll want more- we'll want more from him. Power really spoils people.

    And I disagree that it depends on the person- well partly- course there are some poeple that can control themselves, but even the most goodhearted person can be spoiled by the games that power brings with it- even if you do everything with a good thought, you'll get into trouble- because you'll be attacked from all sides. I'm sure I don't want any power for myself- it will defintelely spoil me...

    Re: Too much Power Creates Greed?

    I myself agree with two people here.
    first off Fireandice, because it does depend on the person holding the power,
    when I think of it, there is a saying that comes to mind.( It is from spiderman, forgive me) With great power comes great responsability, I belive that this is true.
    ok and the second is Lasura.
    so I can honestly say yes power in the hands of a mad man is bad, but power in the hands of a kind and honourable person, can change the world.

    Too much Power Creates Greed? TOO much power creates in it's owner a thirst for more so yes,there's a lot of types of greed ,and that's one ,second it depends on the individuality and person sometimes but not always ,that's what i think
    Life and Death are always one and the same

    Re: Too much Power Creates Greed?

    What do u think people with power want? More power. It's rather simple. people with power are never satisfied and they get so caught up in their greed they let that negative aspect of the human characteristic run their life, with no possibility of self control what so ever. people think that when they have it all (and more) and they lose it, they say that is god who bought them down. But Its not God who bring us down, we sometimes cause our own downfall by our greed... and that's a fact!!!

    Well now abc, that all depends on how they get it in the first place doesn't it? Not everone comes to power the same way or for the same reasons.

    There is a saying "Absolute power, corrupts absolutely." i think that this is very true. No matter who you are, you can always have too much power and it'll go to your head. This is evident with political corruption over the course of history.

    Our love will go on until the end of time. I will always be yours and you will be mine.
