“My theory of power centers around Power Networks, and assumes that all people are motivated by survival instincts to seek, consolidate, and capitalize power.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
-Lord Acton, in a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton, 1887.
In the 115 years since that was spoken, few people still fully grasp the idea of “power”. We speak of people as “rich and powerful”, always instrinsically connecting money to power. What most people (especially here at K5) fail to understand that money and power are equatable. Power is far better than money. ”
