what is strength?

                    more precisely,
                                                  what is power?

from
the perspective
of
the outsider,

weak leaders
act like
strong leaders,

and

                    strong leaders
                    act
                    indifferent

weak leaders
portray
them-
     selves as stronger
     
in order
          to get
                    their way
          
they gamble
they escalate

what is strength?

                    more precisely,
                                                  what is power?

democrats
&
dictators

the strong ruler
does not issue
any command at all
                         because
her will
is implemented already

that is strength.

                    more precisely,
                                                  it is power.

we cannot infer
whether power
is being exerted effectively,
based on outcomes alone

that is strength.

                    more precisely,
                                                  it is power.

a sign of strength
a sign of weakness
the same
observable
implication

a sign of strength
signs of weakness
radically
different
interpretations

understand what is mi[   ]ing
