Today is May Day

A day to celebrate workers around the world, but also the international call for help!

MAYDAY!

Just remember this …

Scammers seek only one thing. It is not money, it is not sex. It is not expensive cars or jewelry. It is not property or wealth – those are just incidentals.

IT IS POWER.
SCAMMERS SEEK POWER!

Power over their situation. Power over other people (victims). Power in their society. They get drunk on their power!

Power is not complicated.

Power does what it has to do to gain it. To gain more of it. Always more of it.

There is never enough power for those that seek it.

The seeking of power has no altruistic mission behind it. You can see that in anyone that just seeks power – they rarely do any good, they just seek more of it.

In this way, scammers are no different than certain politicians.

In The End, Power Only Results In Evil. Power Corrupts!

Think about that next time you support a politician.

In the end, power only leaves victims unless it is not the goal and instead is only a tool. But few can wield power without being corrupted by it. You have to be willing to acknowledge power for what it is and call out those that are only interested in power.

To use power you have to be willing to walk away from it. And in the end actually, do that.

Unfortunately, most people are attracted to power. Scammers. Politicians. and those who vote for the power-mad.

Power Is Never Taken, It Is Willingly Given!

Each person here gave scammers their power. Many are afraid to try to take it back. It has always been that way.

But there are a few that recognize power for what it is and fight against it without being corrupted by it.

Sometimes it is hard to tell if those people also only seek power. In the end, we know who is who by their deeds.

Even Pure Evil Can Do Some Good To Hide Its True Intentions!

Hate blinds those that need vision most. Fear blinds also. Wishful thinking blinds even more.

To recognize evil and those that just seek power, you need to be able to see clearly.

Remember that today on May 1.

Incidental good can still come from evil. Scammers support their families. Serial killers pay their taxes. Power mad politicians do sometimes pass laws that make it harder for some evil. ScamScam A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime -  is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost. haters put out some useful information.

But In End Power Corrupts Everything If It Is Allowed To Do It.

Only good can stop power. Only good can stop evil.

Only use power if absolutely necessary but never seek it.

FOR THERE LIES DRAGONS!

Happy May Day
