    People sometimes want power because they’ve been pushed around and want to become the pushERs instead of the pushEEs. Where to begin in Beowulf? HWÆT, WE GAR-DEna in geardagum, þeodcyninga þrym gefrunon, hu ða æþelingas ellen fremedon! Seriously, Check Spark notes and Cliffs notes for ideas

  9. sculley says:

    People seek power because it means control. Those who have power can control what happens to themselves, either directly or indirectly. That, in turn, means at least the illusion of security, and the ability to keep the world from changing into something they don’t like or with which they are unfamiliar. We as a species are pretty much programmed to like the status quo from an evolutionary standpoint because it’s safe, so that’s what most people seek to preserve, although not everyone realizes it.
