Upon hearing about an innovative , yet practical , business idea
from three financial backers yesterday , the newest backer
excitedly shared the news with family and friends.

If a company had no resources it could not provide any security but if it had a financial baker it could provide some security.

Mr.Tolkien addresses a very relevant , evolving and critical
topic that's of national and international importance . I believe
too many people are unconcerned about why individuals and groups
seek powerful positions through financial investments , political
or appointed positions , and other leveraging venues. As a person stands
at the pinnacle of a pyramid or an iceberg , they are actually
supported by an extensive structure that may or may not be seen ,
yet it supports them nonetheless. The cohesion of financial and/or
ballot box supporters does wield a substantial amount of power ,
but do people really know the full agenda of whom they are supporting ?
Knowing the background activities and interests of a person or group , past and present ,
can give a probable trajectory of intentions. With that knowledge , one
can avoid making an inadvertent but misaligned alliance , or one may extend
the establishing of a new alliance. It's best to thoroughly know those whom you
intend to support, because your support is their base of power. And the pinnacle
holder may then extend their power to the other supporters through alignments.
Be very careful with whom you choose to align yourself with !
