actual power

A Quote by Mr. on power, actual power, perceived power, and mr prophet

 

     There are two kinds of power. One is actual power. The other is perceived power. Actual power is conferred by status or position in a given society. Those who have perceived power often do not have actual power but have the confidence of the masses. The right person with perceived power can have a profound affect on the will of The People. This, in time, can force the will of the powerful to bend. . Those with actual power have money and weapons and armies to back up their power. Those with perceived power are merely backed up by a thought. That thought however, can defeat armies, make weapons useless and money obsolete because armies and weapons and money cannot stop a great thought or a great idea once it begins to take hold.
