Does Society Ever Go Too Far? Just because we can should we? Does society ever take things too far?Does power give people the right to do absolutely anything? With power people do terrible things. Power gets into people's’ minds and causes them to do crazy things. Take a look at how science pushes cloning too far, how police took their powers too far, and how power helped marriage equality.
