Power and Love

So Adam Kahane has been thinking along the same line as I have for the past twenty years.

“What makes Power degenerative rather than generative is the lack of love, what make love degenerative rather than generative is the lack of power.” 24:08

“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” 24:40
― Martin Luther King Jr.

Kahane says that walking the narrow line between Power and Love is dangerous. This is what Kahatika is about. I’m hoping I don’t wake up dead as a result.

Strange that the first four letters of his name represents the Maori word for Power.
