Power Makes You Stupid


Bill Ross's picture

An attribute of criminal power (ability to coerce) is unaccountability for your actions. Power insulates itself from consequences using the threat of our guns, pointed at us, to prevent our retaliation for their crimes.

It is not power that makes you stupid. It is irresponsibility and therefore lack of the feedback required to learn, adapt and therefore survive.

Power, because of lack of feedback (facing consequences of THEIR actions) is doomed to non-survival, due to unfitness and inability to learn or adapt to reality. THINK about it:


The only valid question is: Will we allow them take us and civilization with them?
