In-Sight: Power Deadly

An article in The Huffington Post (11/12/13) offers us a perspective akin to that of the Gospel…

“The more power we have — as seen in politicians, the media, CEOs, movie stars, control freaks, or in those who always think of themselves first — the more the ego rules, making “me and my opinions” the most important. There is no limit to the damage a powerful ego can cause, from the arrogant conviction that our own opinions are the only right ones and everyone should be made to agree, to wielding and abusing responsibility and authority at the expense of other people’s lives and freedoms.”
