Money and Power aren’t always analogous. Sometimes they fight to the death. We think money can buy anything and it does, usually. Oh, except those things we value most . . . Love, respect, friendship . . . You may believe money can, but not real love, respect or friendship. Take away the money and everything disappears.
Isn’t power money? That’s what most people think, but that’s not always true . . . I’m thinking of Gandhi, Dali Lama and Martin Luther King. Power can be given to a cause, it can be taken and it can be taken away.
And sometimes the pursuit of one will lose the other . . . Today’s cable T.V. has sold the power to advertisers. CNN, MSNBC, FOX will pay a price . . . We the Viewers will get tired and then we’ll turn it off. The pursuit of money will cost in power, the power they use over us and that’s good for us.
