It's like some people would rather be the head of the trash heap than be one node in an interconnected network of people...

There was this documentary about a guy who went into one of the slums in Mombai... And I got to thinking about how there were people in there... The people in the Market gild part (where he stayed). About how that was basically the elite part of the slum. About the millionare... The guy who would rather be the richest guy in the place than have a more modest income away from the trash... Living in a nicer part of Mombai.

People differ in how much they are motivated by having power / control over other people.

I don't see having power / control over other people as something that is fun. I see it as something that is a responsibility...

But then that's because I always thought it was having a duty to help the other be the best they could be.

Other people seem more focused on exploiting some collection... They don't even have the capacity to see the value in (or care about that, even).

Is the world getting worse?
Or am I just starting to ask less 'what is wrong with me' and instead seeing that... I'm not actually the problem.
Oddly... Sure my Mother is horrible... But if I think more about the other people around my Mother... I never really thought about how horrible they were because I was focused on her. She shielded me from that, I suppose. In her own special way.
