Power hunger

I find present day politics fascinating and scary. For example:

Bloomberg @business tweeted:

An emerging trend in this debate: Kamala Harris very clearly only wants to debate Joe Biden. Every time she’s been challenged by a lower-polling candidate, she takes it back to Biden

In response Ellen Pompeo @EllenPompeo tweeted:

Because she’s overconfident and believes he is her only competition

This was one of the responses:

Let me be very clear this was racist

The consensus appears to agree with the racist declaration despite the fact it is extremely clear there is no racism.

This is political correctness run amok.

I used to wonder how it was possible things could get so messed up in the USSR and Nazi Germany that they could execute people for speaking what most people knew to be the truth. Now I see the virulent roots of this growing in our country.

When those who insist they should have the power to control other people get most of what they want they don’t stop. They find more things and people they must control. In many people it appears hunger for power is never sated. Read The Gulag Archipelago, 1918-1956: An Experiment in Literary Investigation (Volume One). Even when such people have the power to murder others on any imagined slight, and no matter how many they murder, the hunger cannot be satisfied.

Insist they obey the constitution. Vote them out, put adults in charge, and have a backup plan.
