The Fragility of Power

All power has boundaries, all can be opposed. When we consider ‘power’ within our systems, we often think about gain, about strength, but equally valuable is to consider our fragility. Where do the edges lie, and what can split it down the middle.

Fragility may not be the same as weakness: a fragile power may be an important one. Perhaps power that is held through consensus is fragile, and yet worth having. The power to lead as given by others.
