the maddest of crowds

Money is a shared delusion that some people should be more powerful than others, a mildly insane way to digitize exactly how much power you lack.

Madoff was so clever
but did he ever 
notice he never 
felt like he had enough?

Excellent insight!

Which means, of course, I agree. :)

Lately I've started using "influence" and "influential" instead of the P word, however.

I've noticed the word "power" seems to have a weird power over some people. The influence of money, and the influence of people who somehow accumulate money, seems consistent with the P word and with our common saying, "Money talks."

Good stuff here! Thanks for contributing your perspective.
