The term “POWER” has multiple definitions and uses. This word, as many of you will know, is used to describe the faculty, ability, capacity, or authorization to carry out a specific action. Power also implies the possession of greater physical and intellectual strength.

Anyway, the most common use of the term refers to control, empire, dominion, and jurisdiction that a man has to carry out something or impose a mandate. Thus, power is related to the government of a country or the tool which contains the power that a human being granted to another so that, on his behalf, he can carry out a certain plan. Power is also a possession or ownership of something.

The theme of power has been, throughout the history of humanity, one of the fundamental problems that man has had to face. Since immemorial times, in tribal society and, until today, power and the way it is exercised have been a concern of philosophers and scholars of the social sciences (sociologists, social psychologists, organizational psychologists, political scientists, economists). So I give you this lapidary phrase: WANTING IS POWER!
