Of men and the risks they take – Post 16

What makes men at powerful positions give in to momentary weaknesses and put at stake all that they have earned? There are number of such examples – Clinton, Woods, Arnold, Kahn and then our home grown Shiney.

What could be so strong as to risk life’s work, reputation and family?? The thrill of the risk involved? Yes that could be one. Or could it be the basic primal instinct?

Or is it just the rush one gets from taking risks? In addition, the belief that they are invincible and could get away with it. Maybe they would have gotten away a number of times. But still doesn’t the “what if” play in their minds?

Or could it be the momentary lapse of logic. Or are these actions a result of a jiffy of insanity. Are these premeditated?

Or could it be the misplaced sense of entitlement, something that makes these men feel like they are doing a great honor by forcing themselves on someone. Like a privilege they are bestowing.

Whatever it is that goes in the minds of these powerful men of position, it must be something really potent. Potent enough to entice them to put everything at stake.

What do you think?

  1. They just need a change 😛 When everything is going fine and good they maybe want to risk it all..Some say they wish to take a different path and see what destiny hold for them.. 🙂 what say>?

    I think the power of money and brightness of success blinds them of reality and they start believing everything is under their control. Repurcussions of any action is the last thought that might or perhaps might not come to their mind.

  3. U know what I think both men and women in power do it, the womens one dont come out because well the society is made to condition that only men can misuse women…

    I think its the power and the fact that they think that it can make them get away from it that makes them do it

      U know monika, when i tweeted about this earlier in the day, someone else too made this comment about women. even i think the same. but social conditioning and whole lot of non information around this topic has left the women folk out!

  4. Power/Money they possess is the culprit. Power/Money makes them believe that they can do anything and get away with it.

    Agree with Mon. Not just men. And I don’t think power is a criteria either. Its human to err. Hota hai.
