True power comes from the height of ultra-violence produced by the best weaponry combined with the brutal will to wield it indiscriminately without morality or remorse.
As it always has been... and always will be.
Three Ways of Control
4. Mass Media/Subconscious Manupliation
5. Space/Time Control
535 you tend to focus on one way of control while forgetting the other two
Realize that POWER is different than control.
There are the soft arts of control, and there is the hard-core art of violent power.
Additionally, any of the soft arts of control can be militarized to become a true power. The power over life and death.
Financial Arts may be militarized to cause mass starvation on command.
Religious Arts may be militarized to cause massive deaths amongst an otherwise homogeneous population from internal strife.
Media Arts may be militarized to communicate incorrect and inflammatory information that is guaranteed to cause massive deaths from either battle or violent protest.
Space Command and the Military are one and the same, so although they are "different", the direct ends are the same.
Control is a tactic using the soft arts, without being militarized, for those who have already been conquered or are well on their way.
Power is the ultimate expression of violence. It comes from the ability to immediately remove an uncooperative individual, a group, or an entire population at will over a relatively short period of time with prejudice.
Control without power is of little use as it has been shown that populations will always, over time, rebel against the systems of control - thus shattering the systems of control itself.
Power is the ability to oversee a system of control with the knowledge that if the system itself is under attack, the hammer may be dropped at will.
That is power.
