Misfiring On All Cylinders- They Become Driven

We also need to understand that pursuing (or maintaining) a sense of having “power over” others also -often- becomes quite obsessive over time for some people, if they don’t find ways to grow up and out of this mindset. Quite like an addiction. 

So while the rest of humanity tends to gravitate toward logic and reason, and ethics steeped in compassion as primary tools to try to create a better world,  some authoritarian prone folks are never satisfied, never feel secure in their”power over” so they continue to try to get more, more, more. Quite like an addiction. 

They become driven and insistent on having things under their control.
