    If you have the intelligence to enslave the world, should you?

    Let's say you're really smart and perfectly capable of rising from zero to major baller in no time and influence government policies around the world. Should you?

    (Just wondering since we have a lot of right wing, free markets TSR members). - Also would you personally do it?

    Being able to do something tells you nothing about the morality of doing it. I think you are connecting you unrelated things imo.

    We live in a society where gaining more is always perceived as better. It's just a question, looking for a general and individual response. I take it you would not?

    I think I would not base the decision of whether to enslave the world on whether I have the intelligence to enslave the world. Rather tautologically, I would only enslave it if I had both the ability and the desire to do so.
