    Definition of power

    What is the exercise of power? It is the imposition of will. It is the ability to set the terms of how society functions. Power can be exerted to either maintain or change the current social relations, economic activity, the ways we meet our needs and even defining what those needs are.

    The content of this, the result of the exercise of power, is shaped by a combination of the consciousness and material interests of those doing it. If they are capitalists, their power allows them to extract surplus value from the exploitation of labor during the production of commodities from raw materials. Their power allows them to expand their method of accumulation, to solidify their class position, and on an individual level, to buy diamonds, mansions and fancy shoes for themselves. If the currently dominated classes and peoples are ever able to exercise sufficient power to overcome the dominators, then this will allow us to organize society on a different foundation: fairness and sustainability.

    Seems to me that your foundation of fairness and sustainability will occur after a lot of blood shed. How else will those classes exercise sufficient power to make the new foundation? Not that I have any qualms about blood letting in these circumstances. I’ve always thought that dueling would go a long ways to keeping everybody a little more reasonable. With dueling the concept of taking responsibility for your actions becomes much more than just a quaint idea.

    The problem with revolutions are that someone is still left in power. And that person is the one with the biggest gun. Anarchy is a pipe dream.

    Power—control, exercising of force. Whether through money, social pressure, political pressure, financial pressure and physical force. We the People only have social pressure left since our political power is all too often negated by the wealthy and their financial control of their employees in office.

    You imply that it’s the seizure of the same manipulative, exploitative means of production by which the proletariat gains power. Aren’t you just putting yourself in the driver’s seat of the same mad machinery? There’s no other source of power or wealth, as you’ve defined them. All that’s left is finding another amoral thug like Stalin to make it come true. And to kill off you inconvenient idealists like Trotsky was killed. With an ice axe. Through the skull. End of problem, end of discussion, POWER RULES!! YEAH!!!
