Quote Of The Week

“Politicians are power addicts. Just like some people are addicted to drugs or gambling or porn, these people are addicted to the high they get from exerting power over other people. It burns them up that somewhere, there’s someone who they can’t control. They’re willing to murder billions and destroy society just to gain more power over more people. Addicts are not rational, they will do anything to feed their addiction, even if it destroys them and everyone around them.”

    Yep.

  3. Well stated, recent studies confirm that Power is a more powerful addiction than heroin.

  4. Most of them are also addicted to drugs, gambling, sex or alcohol as well. The more depraved they are the more alleged power they are given. Big levers they are to be pulled when needed. Hence Pizzapalooza and Spirit Cook books.

  5. “Addicts are not rational, they will do anything to feed their addiction, even if it destroys them and everyone around them.”

    yup.

    the worst kind of person is someone who has no control over themselves.

    kill ’em.

    it’s for their own good.
