otherwise all pandemonium would break loose; leaders must be established. But, when
But power is not all bad though. As was stated earlier, it is necessary in any group
games), to happen. Recently, in the NBA, Dennis Rodman took this struggle to an extreme.
In disagreement with an official’s call, Rodman head-butted the official, and through a
temper-tantrum on his way off the court. Quite obviously, this is bad. Every player in the
league agrees to the rules set by the NBA from the beginning. The rules are made to keep
control, and the officials have power to enforce these rules. If there were no regulations,
players would be doing whatever they wanted whenever they wanted. If Rodman’s antics
would have taken place somewhere other than a basketball court he probably would be in
did with the referee, he probably would be put in jail or at very least heavily fined. Well, the
NBA is not going to put anyone in jail for this, but they did fine him and suspend him for a
couple of games. Basically Rodman is as bad as any street bully who picks on or beats up
game.” In nine out of ten cases, a fine is levied, and all is forgotten.
There will always be people, like Rodman, trying to have power over a situation
when they can’t. Any criminal is trying to do exactly that. They are trying to make their own
rules. When caught for this, they’re punished; they are punished by people who have power.
Power is obtained in a couple ways. You can earn it and it can be given to you.
example, if a person was good friends with someone who is in a position of power, say their
boss, and disliked a co-worker of theirs, they possibly could get something bad to happen
until someone known had it.
While power is something that can be good or bad, liked or disliked, one thing is for
sure: it is constantly being put to use to control people. And when there is no power, there
is no organization and everything is bedlam. So every person is in one way or another
involved with power. Some have it, but all must abide by it or reap the repercussions.
