Hmm...  I'd argue that this in fact supports my original contetnion.. that
true power brings responsability.

That fish was VERY responsible in his "shephearding" of the guppies in
order to insure a food supply.

Motivations are, to a  degree, irellevent.  Those who have great power and
little responsibility can quickly foul their own space and  kill themselves...
