Power is sometimes perceived as a negative quality. Powerful people are often described as: intimidating, overbearing, forceful, aggressive or threatening, yet some powerful people create good in our world.
When power is used for ill, it is at best manipulative and at worst oppressive or evil. "Power over" creates a disequilibrium where one person is strong and the other weak. When power is channelled for good, everyone benefits. Consider some of the most powerful figures in history and forces for good, ie, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King. Use of power for evil (ie, Adolph Hitler) is a plague on humanity.
We all have the ability to influence others for good or evil purposes. How will you use your power?
