Political Power/Title

Skip Navigation LinksHome Page > Evolution > Social Order > Privilege > Political Power

Political power is just an extension of basic power. We endow people with power when we provide them with titles. Whether we do this in an election or it is done by a king or ruler the results are the same. Realizing the corrupting effect of power, democratic societies and organizations tend to limit terms of office while monarchies and other forms of governments lean toward making appointments for a lifetime.
