Tim Allen made man’s obsession with power a focal point of his show “Home Improvement”. It was a mocking of the mindset, but it really served to point out people’s (mainly guys) thoughts that you always need more, and you can never have enough. This doesn’t only go for power, of course, humans tend to be an inherently greedy bunch, but, back to power….how many times have you heard or seen in a movie, especially sci-fi, cries to increase the power? It’s countless. It doesn’t even matter if it makes sense. We just have had it pounded in to our heads that if something isn’t working, it needs more power. Forget subtlety, nuance or skill, power is the only thing that matters. If it breaks, it is only because it wasn’t built to handle the power that it needed, not because you gave it too much power…..right?
