4. It's easier to take over something than to build.

Of course, that usually creates a lot of resentment, schisms, and the like. And those taking over and trying to impose change on others ultimately wind up having a kind of purge, if they have that kind of authority, or insult those who leave the party.

It's always best to do what's easy, especially if you can manipulate others. (?)

As one other OP put it today, those who want change aren't the aggressors. No, that's not their self-image. It's those who haven't changed that are really those who are aggressively trying to change things. (Again: ?)
