Re: The Fear of Power
I have found it interesting that the Spanish verb "poder" means "to be able" and also can mean "power," as in "the power to do something." So, "power," in that sense, is all about ability.
poder. masculine noun. 1. power (mando, competencia). estar en/hacerse con el ... To be able, may or can, to possess the power of doing anything (capacidad).
