Sorry, Jimi Hendrix

RedBricksUnder3_6360
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” – Jimi Hendrix

Sorry Jimi, that’s beautiful but wrong. It is not the love of power that needs to be overcome. On the contrary, the power of love can strengthen the love of power and the love of power can strengthen the power of love. Love loves the power to strengthen love. If the love of power to strengthen love ruled the world, no one would know need or war.
Had Jimi said, “When the power of love overcomes the love of money the world will know peace.” he would have been on the right track. Money and power are not the same thing. Money is basically things, whereas power is basically energy, in this case, biological energy, living energy, thinking energy. People.
When people unite their energy in a common cause, their united power will permit them to enforce their will. And what, if not the will of the majority, shall decide the direction of society and the means to get there. With the power of love and the love of power the people can transform the earth into a garden of peace and prosperity, a place where Jimi Hendrix music can be heard.
