Everyone wants an empire. Everyone wants something that is theirs, that they control.
Problem is, all these empires are run by people with little man syndrome. They all want peace and tranquility without the need to put any effort it, but the moment something happens that runs the risk of ruining the peace and tranquility, their empire is sudden somebody else’s problem.
Of course if everyone wasn’t a complete cockwomble perhaps it wouldn’t be so much on an issue.
Do the job you are paid to do, and leave me to do the job I am paid to do.
