I've been off in other dimensions for awhile

... as a prelude, I was recently given a
chance to see the Game of Thrones

... and in my youtube wanderings I come
across videos clearly linking the series
to the rise and fall of the Plantagenet
family in early England, the bloody wild
times of Henry II

...further wanderings brought me to the
true story of Machiavelli and his book
The Prince

... the writers of the show made a very
good point to describe The Prince as a
handbook for gaining and maintaining power

... they further went on to speculate, that
the dog-eat-dog mentality of the corporate
world, demonstrates that we all have
become Machiavellian in our perceptions
on how to survive in these times

... it's everyman or family for his or
it's own self

... but that demotes us to that less-honorable
level, where people lie and backstab to get
along .... it's called The Age of Kali-Yuga,
the Age of Iron

... it wasn't meant to be this way

... what happened is that we discovered greed
