Love and power


To achieve power, you first need to achieve power over yourself. To find love you first need to love yourself. 

Hitler could never hold down a job and slept late so this is more complicated than it seems. Loving oneself is also complicated.

  1. Years ago, I thought about doing a dissertation on 'evil leaders' and failed first careers - Hitler failed art student, Stalin seminary dropout, Mussolini failed schoolmaster in Switzerland and arrested for vagrancy, Pol Pot returned to Cambodia after failing exams in Paris three successive times (he did join the Communists in Europe though), etc.. But alas that's work.
