Power Without Responsibility

‘Everyone has a price. Even evil little bastards like Zama.’

‘Sounds like he’s got all the money he needs,’ I said.

‘It’s never enough for people like him. Besides, it’s not just wealth that turns his type on. They get off on power and of being feared by lesser mortals.’

‘Respect,’ I mused. ‘Power without responsibility. The way with his type around the world.’

~ Excerpt from “Some UnHoly War” by Terence Strong

Is there power without responsibility, God? I thought ALL power came with responsibility.

Let me ask you–do you have power?

Like yeah. The Power Within. Everyone has it. Some are just not aware, I guess.

No need to guess, child. It is a fact. Some are aware. Some are unaware.

You forgot some.

I know, child.

Well?

Why do I always have to be the bad guy?

Fine! Geez. Some are aware but pretend to be unaware so that they don’t have to be responsible for their actions. Woah. I just answered my own question!

End of discussion.

No! I miss You.

No, you don’t.

Yeah. You’re right. I’m speaking on behalf of others who do. Can’t we make this post longer? Our posts these days are like M&M’s. One packet isn’t enough. For me, anyway.

End of discussion. The message is obvious.

Fine.
