Sitting in the local pub recently with a few close friends of mine I decided to invite them all to talk about power, and what it means to them.

"Power is in your hands, it is the ability to utilise what tools you have to maximum efficiency for your well being and pleasure." One said

"Power is simply how much better you are than those you consider less powerful" Uttered another.

"I think power is a fallacy, one can be extremely powerful without actually having any power at all" blurted the pussy guy.

We never really came to a firm conclusion. But I decided to go home and see what the big boys had to say about power.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.” Abraham Lincoln

He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still” Lao Tzu

When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt” Unknown

There is no knowledge that is not powerRalph Waldo Emerson

Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.” George Orwell

Power is an entity in my belief, a utensil if you like, it is always in use, and to use it well you simply need to direct it the right way. Now if you live in the western matriarchy you will have no doubt been bought up to believe that the right way to use your power is to get a great education, then a great job, then find a woman to support and give half of your life over to her. The strange thing is most people think that if they do all this they will be satisfied and will have lived a fulfilling life. Bollocks ! I say to them ! Absolute bullshit. Education is always good, but I would certainly not call it Necessary. Knowledge is necessary. Education is simply warped knowledge given to you by those with an agenda. Now if you don't need to give half of your money away to the wife, or to get that big house for two, or for the two or three cars that your woman needs, then you don't need to have a Ph.d and a be at the very top of the corporate ladder to have power. No not at all. Because, friend, you have more power than they have already. They spend half of what they earn pursuing women, and paying alimony to one of their seven ex wives, whilst you only earn a fifth of what they do, but all of it goes on YOU. You holiday more, you can travel the world whenever you wish too. You have read books from distant corners of the world and therefore have real knowledge, you have met thousands of different people, you have engaged in activities you would never have thought existed before you broke out of the system. You will know different languages, you'll have women desperate to trap you in marriage who you can just bang, and then bugger off to turkey and find a wife who is submissive if needs be.The point is your choices are ENDLES, that is FREEDOM !

You might not have six cars, a luxury cruiseliner and own a hotel, but you don't give a shit, you're much happier to just spend every christmas with a different woman on a different beach, sipping a cold beer, having a smoke, watching the sun go down, and contemplating how great you are.................

Knowledge is power.Francis Bacon, Sr (and just about every philosopher that existed)

You now have the knowledge. Will you use its power...........
