This week’s Wednesday Whatevers.
- Why does mankind feel the need to claim and posess?
Hm… probably because it’s a useful trait from an evolutionary standpoint. Folks who don’t look out for their own interests (and owning things so you can use them/get food from them/hunt them/whatever is definitely in your best interest) probably don’t survive much.
- Why does the cost of living rise?
Same reason we have inflation, whatever that is.
- After gaining power, what else does one get?
Temptation toward corruption. Lots of hangers-on and yes-men. The fear that people who seem to like/love you are faking it so they can be close to someone powerful.
Yes, I’m a cynic.
