If your main concern is keeping power, then you don't really care about anything. Power is an illusion anyway – it's an illusion that has to be maintained by cruelty and paranoia. The force you waste on keeping other people in line only creates your destruction. It only turns you into a monster who deserves destruction. Holding onto power is a sickness. It's the same kind of sickness that makes serial killers hunt, rape and murder women. It's the same sickness that makes a person walk into a grade school with a rifle and start shooting. It's the same kind of sickness that makes schoolboys gang rape girls on buses. Power is the sickness. Stop dreaming about power.
