Body Power Vs Soul Power

CN505 power station is extremely dangerous tool in the hands of man. The nuclear bombs dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed hundreds and thousands of man and still a blot on the humanity. The lust of power in people caused destruction of millions of lives in the world wars and civil wars. Power always creates hatred and always detested by people. Even the people who exercise power gradually fill themselves with hatred to the world. Yet power gives the feeling of elation as the man at least for little moment tends to feel himself like God. It, therefore, corrupts the very soul of the person. It is wisely said that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Yet power seems to have no substitute. The order in the world can only be maintained by power which creates fear in the people breaking the law. This fear keeps the people in the right path. Power is also associated with God and He is considered to be Omnipotent or All Powerful. He runs the world by His power and powerful man runs their nation using power at their disposal.

However good intentioned the use of power may be, it has always created hatred. All powerful people were hated by the masses on whom the power were exercised. Mussolini who tried to do public good through Fascism using the principle of equality and socialism was so hated by his own people that he was executed along with his mistress and the their bodies were taken to the Piazzale Loreto (in Milan) and hung upside down on meathooks from the roof of a gas station, then stoned by civilians from below.
