Gaining power vs. using that power for good

Jul 11, 2011 Published under Introspection, Leadership

It is so perplexing that some people care only about power and zero about what positive things they could do with that power.

I am increasingly repulsed by the News Corp organization and think it represents everything that is wrong with our world.  It is less its FOX News channel ultra-conservatism than its sensationalist irresponsible news outlets; from the way they exploit people with all their tabloids and the whole ordeal of hacking phones of missing children (, to the way they libel people (like calling the woman who sued DSK a prostitute in the NY Post, who is now suing them, or, prior to turning tables, attacking all French people with embarrassing stereotypes when they were indicting Strauss-Kahn.

I am so perplexed and people that just seem to have no values or morals and accumulate wealth and power as if that is the end, rather than the means to a more productive end.
