    It is interesting to see that this cuts across economic classes though.
    Weak people want power, I don't think there is any relevance to that. How they will go about acquiring it is a different story.

    "Want" is very different from "willing to take take the steps to acquire".

    If the only step is voting it is not too difficult.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Damnit I had a perfect quote in mind from The Will to Power about masking the desire to command as obedience, as a means of tasting some kind of power, but can't find it in this book- too many marks and folds.

    This here is pretty good though: "The rights a man arrogates to himself are related to the duties he imposes upon himself, to the tasks which he feels equal. The great majority of men have no right to existence, but are a misfortune to higher men."
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    This might be right. I'm poor and bolshy but am a physical beast.

    Do you mean by Bolshy, like, Bolsheviky? Or is that a word for a physique type or something?

    The human mind will always try to create happiness no matter the situation. If you're weak, you go through life unable to really attain physical power. In general, people will react by saying that they don't want the power anyways.

    Social services too, from what I see, seems to be fetid with these types. Angry black women who use abusive language and mocking tones, herding retarded people around town while they run errands are quite common sights in NJ.

    You are trying to pigeon hole the term into the narrow definition your political ideology allows. It's all fine and dandy when money flows to the top. When it farily flows both ways suddently it's "wealth redistribution" and "socialism". Typical conservative never letting facts get in the way of his opinion.

    Because you made the claim, so yes you have to back it up. Your actual claim was that the poor pay more in than the wealthy. Both vague terms, however, ill let you define for the purpose of discussion.
    I believe she said tax rate. Very different.
