The modern day dilemma is this: you are, at the same time, powerful and powerless.
You are powerful because your voice had never been that loud. You can vote, you can write your blog, you can express yourself and change your society with many people around you. You are influential.
But you are powerless. Tommyjonk said that even if you are the authority and you are so powerful in the course of somebody¡¦s life, they are of their own. You simply cannot influence anybody, because they are powerful of their own. You are not influential at all.
When you are teaching, when you are voting.
