"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." (Jimi Hendrix) What is power? How come it is "power" that shapes out minds and most importantly our society? In our community all people care about is who is powerful, and can conquer all.

Everyone is influenced by this trait which is gained only through perseverance, risks, and sometimes even self destruction. Normal folks are influenced by power at one point. It is a sweet sensation which one can cross any limits, and boundaries to get a taste of. It is what is making us feel worthy.

Why would not we overcome obstacles to feel superior? Just as anything else such as money, prizes, and possessions feeling superior is desired. The idea of authority can devour one. It takes full management of one’s soul, and brain."Is the feeling of being superior and the "boss" worth a malevolent remark?"

Acting as if one does not have a heart makes everything worse than they were. Showing power through offensive actions is a fault, which society values as being MIGHTY! A fault, which society does not need question about since everyone has a misunderstanding of.

Why cannot we just sit down and talk? Why cannot we value each other's perspective? This is the only way we can defeat competency and the side effects of it. As one we can accomplish many tasks; however, as individuals even one task is difficult. Unity is POWER! We can overcome any obstacles and push down every barrier in our way by working together.
