Agree 1000X to this post. Money does not equal power. It is a form of empowerment but money itself doesn't equal power. In fact, if you study history, there were times were money itself was of little value and the exertion of power took precedence.<quoted text>
When you have a group of men who aren't used to having money and wealth isn't as common among his peer..he tends to abusive with it..as if he thinks it's enough to shift the balance of power in his favor..Notice that group of men where it's more common for the males to make 6 figures or more don't have this aggressive hate nature (abuse) towards their human when trying to "court"...because they have a better chance of trading him in for an equally wealthy or richer guy.. so these men cannot relate on their money solely as men who's women are in poverty (not to mention women nowadays are having their own cashflow)..That's the differences between some men with means who think the woman he PICK and WANT has to prove her worth constantly vs other men with means adore and take great pleasure in spoiling the woman he WANT and PICK...
The purpose of money is more freedoms. How one attains money could certainly give them power but it is not embedded with money.
As you state, it is really silly for some males to play the game of controlling a woman with money when there is only a certain type of woman who enjoys that. The rest of us would rather work our fingers to the bone than sit up and let some idiot dangle his money in our face in order to get food and shelter. How is that fun? No thanks. It's almost the equivalent of buying a big mansion for your kids but then beating your kids daily for living in it.
