1. Yes, and that is pretty much a prerequisite for most investment of any scale. (See. Credit markets, italian banking, mercantile revolution, the dutch, etc.)

If it was not phrased as an absolute (eg. "Living above your means is not guaranteed to bring prosperity") that's a different ball-game.

LOTS of people who have ended up filthy rich started out indebted over their ears.

2. Yes, that was my point: Power is a zero-sum game. (unlike say, prosperty or material goods or other stuff like that) If someone gathers more power, someone else becomes more powerless.

3. As mentioned, that depends on what the problem is. Sometimes the big boss IS the problem itself. Again, if the statement would have been qualified with "Not neccessarly" or some such there'd have been no issue, but the statements are absolute.

9. That depends on your convictions in the first place, no?

10. Yes, it's the same thing. You can parse the sentence into "You shouldn't do things that shouldn't be done."
