    ..

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    They're Navy, so expect a bunch of rainbow flags in the volleyball scene.

    Maverick is just a captain because he always felt the need for speed, not the need for greed!

    In reality Navy Admirals fly very little. Naval Captains still get to fly.

    Admiral salaries are considerably higher than captain salaries. He chose flight time over money.

    Both Air Force and Navy are the same. Once you reach the rank of Admiral or General your duties change so flying is no longer a factor in your career.

    Yeah I understand that but what does that have to do with being greedy?

     I think it meant he chose Speed (being able to fly) over greed (higher pay)
    though it'd be a stretch to define anyone who has some desire for money as greedy (it's what you'll do in order to get it that matters from my perspective anyway) I don't think it's meant literally.

    It is good to know people will go watch a movie about a person who constantly demoted himself to advance his rank by doing fly by's 

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
