Power... It's one of those things which most people don’t think about until it’s taken away from them. Whether it’s the political power over the many, or a lovers influence over just one. We all want some sort of power in our lives if only to give ourselves choices. To be without choices, to feel utterly powerless... Well, it’s a lot like being alone in the dark.
It's true.. power corrupts, absolute power curropts absolutely..But it rocks absolutely too..


If you look at it in a purely 'philosophical' sense ;) No one really has a choice really, ever :P

It is all cause->effect :P

yes you do.. always have a choice.. thats what makes you human.. you always have atleast two choices in everything that you do in life.. cause n effect are the by-products of our choices.. we all make choices.. but in the end our choices make us..

right; so which is why i said in a 'purely philosophical' sense. In the Matrix 2, the merolingian (err, I think that's what that gay looking french guy was called), he had a full discourse on it.

If you think about it, the choices that we make also? They're technically 'effects' of our thoughts. Our thoughts are 'effects' of our upbringing and genetics. So by relation, our choices are just effects of our upbringing and genetics :)

Now people do argue that there IS an x factor in there that makes this relation break; but there is no way to prove one way or the other.
