I called this “Power and Persuasion” because power is used to persuade people to do things they might not ordinarily do. People have had a desire for power since the beginning of time. Power can mean many things depending on the context of the situation. Power is used to rule and to control people, it could be a country full of people, to control one person and lastly power could be used to control one’s self. When using it to control people it is necessary to squash any opposition. We saw this with Socrates in Greece, and non-believers in Iran, and Jesus in Bethlehem. We also saw it in the Koran where Jews and Christians are cast as evil for not believing the word of the Koran. As we also learned in Freud and the Daodejing, power over one’s self is essential to a peaceful life.
