Here I am again, thinking 'bout how fucked up humanity is and how we are stuck in a cycle, of course at 2 AM. Humanity goes in cycles. Ruins, civilizations, freedom, down fall, authoritatianism/evil happens, people fight back, down fall again and the cycle repeats itself. I wonder how can we stay in the freedom stage till the end of humanity? What will liberate us? Because there are always evil powerful people who are ready to do anything, even kill innocent people, to get a bit more power. I'm not that kind of guy who chants eat the rich like a communist maniac but I realize that in order to become like Jeff Bezos you have to be a borderline psychopath. What is the cap on how much you can gather power before you have to forget faith, honor and compassion? And to be clear I have nothing against competition and someone getting or losing power by competing. I love it and that's why I hate almost anything government. But back to the point how can we stop the human masses giving too much power into one (or few) man's hands. Human masses are easy to control and lie to as everyone can realize from observing the current situation. How can this be reversed? Genetical engineering? As long as this is the case I can't see humans living without evil leaders because there are always people smart and wise enough to be able to control these masses. Or can there be good leaders with all the power? Does it always blind the powerful? What do you think? Btw this post is based on my 15 minute philosophical late night thought session. So no 200 IQ stuff here, probably.
