Hm... how much money is needed to have a certain amount of quality power? Or, how much power is needed to have a certain value of money to purchase quality products and services? In South Korea, military power can often be used to earn a great amount of political power as well and is easily convertible or used to gain money. Knowledge is one source of power but sometimes it can be used to increase personal wealth and also can bring in a lot of potentials in political influence on TV, newspapers, printed books, White House, classrooms, or even at home. Sometimes when you are in a prison cell or when you are in the South Korean ROK Army as a private soldier, however vast your knowledge is or how penetrating your insight will hardly mean that you can have as much power as the idiots who joined the army one month ago. For people who are in natural disastor, money and power will mean nearly nothing but they will just want to pray for luck. For people in political chaos or in war, love is probably what they most need. Some people don't want more power but just want to forget and live solitarily or want someone else to do their works and take responsbility over them.
