Absolute Power

th (8)

I crave power. I want it more than anything else. It is the product of  requiring all attention to be directed at me and upon me. The sensation of impregnability and might is epic in its effect. I want power. I want it over others and most of all I want it over you. The degree by which I shall pursue power is only limited by what I believe I can get away with. I take the view that owing to my special status I am above rules, codes of conduct, conventions, procedures and laws. Since I find myself unshackled by these hindrances, I am free to pursue my quest for the attainment of power with utter and total conviction. What I require is complete and total hegemonic domination. Hitler ? His invasions were Sunday afternoon walks in the park? Stalin ? He exercised plenty of power but where did it really get him? Genghis Khan? He showed promise. My single-minded focus goes beyond those men and is a never-ending mission to obtain power.

This power is best obtained when you are prevented from defending yourself. Yes, I want you to bend over and take it and thank me for it afterwards. You are not allowed to protest. You are not allowed to demur ,complain or heaven forfend put up and kind of fight. I want you disarmed and defenceless. That’s why I embark on such a savage campaign when I devalue you, that you end up completely confused and disorientated. I want you swaying, punch-drunk and eyes glazed, urging me to put you out of your misery. Once I have reduced to this state I know I can do as I please and that I have attained absolute power over you. Then the next victim will loom in my sights…….

  1. One of the first power plays my ex-narc employed was telling me that asking him questions was unbelievably painful for him (I’m naturally inquisitive and tried to figure him out – danger zone for him!). Thus, he mandated for 30 days I was not allowed to ask him a question. Not even “how are you”. If I needed information from him, I had to be creative and directive. This was terribly hard the first few days (you naturally say, “what?” and “really?” more than you think!). I’d slip up and he’d act as though I just punched him in the gut. I got it down to a science though. Despite the emotionally abusive nature of this demand, it forced me to think in new ways. I know that may be an odd thing to say but deep down, I savored the challenge.

    1. That is rather spectacular conditioning and brainwashing. As we have acknowledged, you liked the challenge and he knew you would, hence he was able to engage in the fiercest and most demanding behaviours knowing full well you would rise to meet them rather than crumble. He had you worked out from day one.
