The Forces of Humanity (Part I)

There are many forces in the world. In the universe there are four main forces: the weak nuclear force, the strong nuclear force, the electromagnetic force, and gravity. There are said to be many more forces acting on our planet such as weather. I believe there is one main force acting on humanity and society as a whole and that is the force of power. After all, power seems to be the one thing everyone wants more of: Job advancement, fame, fortune, notoriety, a legacy, and power may be obtained from a variety of other means. However, not all power is good, in fact most power is bad, especially the means we go about obtaining it: lying, cheating, back-stabbing, deceit, and criminal activity to name a few.

Unfortunately, what most people do not realize is that only a select few people have enough power to change society for better or worse. And it is my theory that most are changing society for the worse. After all, who makes the biggest impact: a person donating 10 million to cancer research or a serial killer who has claimed 6 victims? I would argue the serial killer because that has an immediate impact on 6 families. The 10 million is just a drop in the bucket of billions donated to cancer research over the past century and there still is no cure for any cancer. Those people trying to obtain power through Facebook, YouTube, twitter, and other media outlets will be short lived and completely forgotten. For instance, some crazy dance or song will have no effect or tangible impact on society in the future.

Power is defined by ability and competence and there are dozens of synonyms such as capability, capacity, function, influence, potential, skill, talent, aptitude, bent, dynamism, effectiveness, efficacy, endowment, faculty, gift, potentiality, qualification, turn, and virtue. The list of antonyms for power is also long: evil, impotence, inability, incapacity, incompetence, lack, weakness, failure, inaptitude, loss, uselessness, debility, disability, impairment, inefficiency, infirmity, subservience, surrender, and yielding. Anti-power is a made up word by myself to help explain the forces of human nature. Anti-Power is more prevalent and powerful than power because it is power that can be used for negative outcomes and or the antithesis of power.

My theory of humanity looks something like a rope with a small knot on each end and a huge knot in the middle (symmetrical). The left end knot represents a group of people I call the Posson group (short for positive persons). Posson individuals are the people who make the biggest positive impact towards society. They are givers, honest, hardworking, listeners, thinkers, and innovators. The other end of the rope represents the Negson group of individuals (negative persons). Negson is the group that is classified by takers, liars, criminals, terrorists, slackers, bullies, and leave a large negative impact on society because they are completely irresponsible and unaccountable. The middle of the rope represents the Neutson group of individuals (neutral persons). Neutson persons should consist of a vast majority of the population because they are everyday ordinary individuals. Neutson people can lean towards either the Posson or Negson group. Neutson persons with high integrity, self-awareness, try to better themselves, and live as they preach lean towards the Posson group. Neutson individuals who are narcissistic hypocrites lean towards the Negson group.
