Power, the love of; and/or the hatred within

If a person can be defined most aptly by the difference between what they love and what
they despise; the concept of power has delineated the personal parameters of the modern
age.  It has redefined the relationships humans experience with each other, and with them-
selves; and has been steady eroding the basis of moral  cohesion and stability.  Its ever-
encroaching debasement has overridden other values and beliefs until it has submerged
society under a mire of oblivion that obscures even the most basic principles of
empathy and compassion.  Without a clear understanding of what power means, and how
it warps those it encompasses; its destructive effects threatens every aspect of personal
and social development.
