The story of human history, from the time of Genghis Khan, to Alexander, Napoleon and Hitler has been defined by the quest for power-- the longing for absolute control.

The struggle for dominion goes on to this very day, only we are not sophisticated enough to detect its subtle battles, which are fought more often today with ideas than with brute strength.
