Problems from the start - Part 1

The problem is the situation has a basic flaw. It has a fundamental problem at the very root, the core, the foundation, the basis.

I'm gonna try to explain the problem. This may will take more than one blog. At that, I may not manage to explain it. Addenda - just a few minutes ago, I did explain it. But I'm still posting these in order. Gonna take 2 weeks.

It's a simple problem and can be expressed very simply.

You are giving away things you don't have.

Simple enough in one respect, But it gets exponentially more complicated with each step away from this simple statement.

You are giving away things you don't have. I try to explain:

This is a paradox. If you don't have it, how can you give it away? Sounds impossible, but that is exactly what you are doing.

You give it away by taking it from someone else.

They give it away by taking it from you.

But neither of you ever had it.

I told you this is complicated and it may not make sense.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

When you take something away from someone and you get away with it, you get bolder. You start to think about what else you can take away. Few people can resist the urge to continue taking stuff from other people.

But, you are taking something that person never had. But you are still giving away something you took from them.

They are taking from you. You never had it either. But they still give it away. They come back for more of something you never had.

Once you get a taste of power, it's hard to get rid of it.
