Why?
Why is it good?
How do you fix/manage that so you can govern yourself/ them/ and the waza shape and direction.
How then does soft power create and control connection?
Please define "soft power." Also, when you say that soft power, once developed, "can actually *prevent" you from forming a waza," do you mean it can prevent the holder of the soft power from forming a waza, or the person who is trying to do the waza to the holder from forming a waza?

Inquiring minds, etc.
