Is reincarnation into a powerful / rich life where you have lots of power coming to you naturally actually more dangerous from a multi-life perspective of reincarnation? Because once the soul picks the life and enters the body, he does not remember that there is reincarnation or that there are multiple lives, hence, the wealth and power he selected for the current life will easily get to his head and he will be tempted to harm lots of other people just for his personal pleasure (and b/c he thinks he can get away with it, after all, he forgot the fact that he picked such a life and that karma exists). So in actually, when a soul (such as some young ones) pick a life of power/prestige/wealth, etc... they are actually setting themselves up for future lives of intense suffering and karma payback. They get a very big "high" in this one life but that is more than offset by lives of bad luck, low status, suffering and tragedy that needs to be balanced out right? I mean, look at Kim Jong Un, Trump, Putin, and also Hitler, other world leaders that came before, also Bill Gates, Bezos, Buffett, Jack Ma, etc... who all have lives where everything magnificent tends to go their way but nothing to stop them and no bad stroke of fate. They worked hard but many people worked hard, but didn't have the luck they had. Where does this luck come from? So a life spent as a king or ruler who can do whatever he wants to anyone else without repercussion shall be paid back by future lives as a prisoner, beggar, or what not?
