Re: Character traits of powerful people

PS: As a general rule, the longer the hierarchy, the higher the chance of ending up with a morally compromised leader. Where the hierarchy is very long, and where it takes years to get to the top, pure-at-heart people will usually not have the stamina to persevere, due to all the morally corrupt thi...

Character traits of powerful people

One of the big ironies about people with the most power is that they are often the least qualified to handle such power. In an earlier post, I have discussed hierarchical structures in societies and how they squash human potential. However, if you zoom in on those who make it to the top, and who you...

Capitalism and man

In addition to the damage to the environment, there is something existential about capitalism that rubs me the wrong way. Capitalism is a competitive system.

Capitalism and the environment

The ice at the North Pole is melting. The earth could be up to four degrees Celsius warmer by the end of the 21st century. The weather is acting weird, in a way that it didn´t, when we were kids. Some scientists believe we are entering the sixth period of species mass extinction. No matter which way...

Hierarchical structures

Hi everybody Over the past year, and the last 6 months in particular, I have been through an intriguing philosophical phase. In this process, I have come to question many of the pillars of human societies. And the more I have thought about, the more I get the feeling that somewhere in human evolutio...

New and hopeful

Hi everybody So just signed up. And like always when at a new party, I´ll have to see how it goes. But I do hope to get in touch with some (very) interesting people. Which, if I know my INFP-type correctly, shouldn't be at all difficult. Whatever time zone you´re in, hope you´re having an enjoyable ...
