A position of power over people. Most people critize authority until they eventially come into power. Then they complain when they are critized. Hypocrites.

Something that is widely misunderstood by many ignorant teenagers, dumb skaters, and clueless punks. Knowledge is power, and the authorities of our time have that power, so instead of being morons who have good intentions but don't know a fucking thing about the polotics behind authority, lets all actually go pick up a book, or become and activist and TAKE DOWN THE FUCKING SYSTEM. All of these cockfucks posting about how we "need authority" are bullshitters and close minded dickheads at best. The only thing we "need" in this world is common sense, and therefore authority won't have to provide us with it. Wake up people, and stop being a dickless puppet of the system that many of you claim to "hate".
The authorites and powers that be have seen it fit to convict innocent marijuana smokers, concious objectors, and activists of crimes and therefore put them in a little manmade thing called prison. Authority is mostly a byproduct of greed and facism.
