The "My Way or the Highway" types do not leave anything open for discussion.

It's their way----or nothing.

And, frequently, "their way" is wrong.

These people are the ones causing all these wars around the world too. Forcing us commoners to slsughter each other while they are safe in their private mansions out of harm's way. Not having to participate in battle unless they choose to.

I liked, for example, how I read about Bill Gates, that he was dumped from the project of this IT club of which he was a member, because it was considered that for image reasons he did not suit them very much, because compared to others he was like a kid, and he knew that they will still need it anyway, he said that he would return to this project, but as not only a member but a member of the management group. So as it turned out that he was right, for his return, he demanded that they make him the head manager, which his older friends were not supposed to agree to, but knowing that they could do s**t about that and time running out they agreed to these demands. :D

As strength is on your side it is worth using it.
Might is right :D

If you have an advantage, it's worth using it :P

It was good for Bill Gates....and, indirectly...good for other people.

But when it’s “my way or the highway”as far as government is concerned, or in personal relationships, the use of this philosophy exclusively will doom you, and others, to failure.

Can you elaborate?

What do you mean? If life creates favourable situation why not exploit it?

I think it is good to know your own value?

Bill Gates's friends put him off the beaten track because he was the smallest of them all, he was a bit socially introverted, doesn't it remind you of something :)

So when it happens that someone is in great need, why not take advantage of the situation to play this situation for yourself :D

On an individual basis, "my way or the highway" could work to any person's advantage, and get them ahead. Or it may not work.

"Exploiting one's advantage" is not really the same as "my way or the highway."

One could "exploit one's advantage" while not saying "it's my way or the highway." One could do it in a nice or nasty way.

Do you mean that some may see pettiness, malice and no class rather than reliable leadership?

One friend of mine said that exploiting someone's difficult situation is mean.

I do have some respect for Bill Gates he actually did something useful.

As for Trump to my knowledge he pretty much lied and cheated to get where he is. His legacy is uppity golf courses and a pompous attitude, Bill Gates...contributions to the world are more functional and practical. I am using windows right now and a microsoft xbox one x. Never had much desire to go to a golf club and hang around a bunch of fancy pants.

He became president, despite the fact that Hillary Clinton was typed as victorious, to the extent that Newseek had already prepared a number about the achievements of the first American woman as presidential, and the entire edition of the magazine had to go to the furnace :D

You can dislike President Trump, you can even hate him, but you have to admit that the guy is extremely effective.

Although he doesn't know much about good manners or diplomacy.
I once read that if somebody told a journalist that half of America does not hate him, and he said that it is a smaller half, because more than 50% voted for him

You mean that if you force someone to accept yourself as a boss, it doesn't create a good chemistry in the team and then it can create resentment that will hinder working together?

Billionaires; the Fact they even exist is a symptom of How Humans Eat the 'Face of God' without restraint;
in other Words, Consume the Balance of Nature; Rape the Resources at Hand for Selfish Greed in most cases
for Power and Status; and Wealth As Symbol of their Human Value.

i often tell the Poor Cashiers at Super Walmart if Billionaires could have generated a Teaspoon of Nirvana
for what i have the ability to do with an Ascending Transcending Meditative Moving Dance through Autotelic
Feedback Upon the Relative Free Will of my Being before they chased all the Dollars; they surely would
Be Rich Enough Within to see the Folly of what Pursuing Happiness Externally truly is.

Here's the thing; though; Nature Puts stuff back in Balance when it goes out of Balance; It's what Nature
Does best; Eat God's Face like a Zombie and Pay the Piper of Mother Nature Eventually; Perhaps not now;
but coming Generations of offspring if 'they' can see as far as that past a Dollar Bill.

It all started with storing Grain in Silos when Humans no longer foraged together hand-in-hand for
Basic Survival where the Dance together at the End of the Day of success in attaining enough Subsistence to
Survive was a celebration for just the Gift of Life. i usually attend a Big Indian Pow Wow in the Area; watching that
even still this Sunday; it is clear what a life of Dance in Interpersonal Communication does for the Real Human Soul.

So yeah; we've moved from Dancing Together to eating the 'Face of God'; not a very advanced species;
not one who can now overall remember from where it came and from where it stays Lost From the 'Face of God' in balance.

So far my Backyard is still doing fine;

No doubt it will look like Paradise for another 4 Decades or so too; Life Replenishes itself Naturally that way;

True, where my entire Paradise cost about as much as a Modern Huge Four Wheel Drive sucking the resources even more.

On Top of that; Money is just a Road Block of Worry to Bliss; Just really a NumBer; it's worth noting that NumBers are Numb unless one makes the symbols holy and sacred full of meaning and purpose like one for all in Balance Now.

I don't care about billionaires.

But I am always impressed by people who can make lots and lots of money and not give a sh*t about the rest of us.

I'd love to be a billionaire.
