Most of them are props by power hungry knowledgeable guys (sometimes women). The knowledge base is also different than what is commonly associated with the term. They concentrate on instruments of power, the primary instrument is "information'', which is used to organize and convince a certain section of a community and use it to subjugate the rest. This is done with a combination of stick and carrot approach. The actual figurehead is seldom a scholar king, the ultimate blame must be born by the community which is governed by idiots. In other words you get the leaders you deserve :)

: People appoint ignorant persons as their power leaders... misleading their ownselves as well as others!

: Power in itself is so alluring!

: History and present today bears witness that power corrupts!

: Having absolute power corrupts absolutely... so goes the adage!

: Its so easy to get caught up in the mad rush for power structure!

: With power is the recruiting want for the honour of men followers!

: With power some seem to be of opinion in reaching some kind of evolutionary maturity level!

: Family, friends, people, numerous news media, etcetera... always constantly vying for our attention to what power constitutes around us!

: Its said that knowledge is the legacy of the Prophets and power is the inheritance of the Pharaohs!

: You have to guard your power, but knowledge guards you!

: A person of power may have many enemies, while a person of knowledge has many friends!

: Knowledge cant be lost or stolen, while power can be lost or stolen from one!

: Knowledge is better because it illuminates the mind, while power is only apt to blacken the mind!

: Knowledge is better because it is boundless, while power can be limited and you have to keep account of it!

: KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, ONLY WHEN THE PERFECTED MIND, HAS THE KNOWLEDGE AND THE WISDOM TO USE IT, AND ONLY THROUGH ACQUISITION OF KNOWLEDGE IS THERE DEVELOPMENT OF WISDOM POWER!

Western economy is based on knowledge that gives them strength above other nations, this doesn't have anything to do with stupid politicians elected by women and homosexuals

That's what i ask myself every day I go to work.....

It the sign of the last hour lol

@ Natty Dreads "Idiot literally means, can't do things on their own without being helped by others...If those persons you are referring to can't do things on their own, then maybe they're not in power in the first place...Does it make sense?..."

So does that mean that I'm in charge of my boss? She's an idiot....

Power cannot be interpreted by means of position at anytime...I think you are a little bit misled by your rational thought there buddy...Knowledge is power can also mean power in your own personal way and there are lots of them, e.g. power to argue, power to convince, power to coerce, etc...And one more thing, you can't say that many of the persons in power are idiots because you can't even prove your statement...Idiot literally means, can't do things on their own without being helped by others...If those persons you are referring to can't do things on their own, then maybe they're not in power in the first place...Does it make sense?...
