“Change comes from power”

“But I am convinced that the best, maybe the only, way to create a better world populated with kinder, more generous, and selfless leaders is to both recognize the current realities and accumulate the power skills to get into a position to change things. Liberal democracy, human rights, freedom of the press, and a more equal distribution of economic and physical well-being don’t just emerge. Those with power or those who seek power for their own interests are not going to be swept away in some new-economy, new power paradise.” (Jeffrey Pfeffer, https://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_posts/9629516-in-2015-old-power-triumphed-over-new-power-again-and-again)
