“Current culture war ideology says with correctness comes power. Add on to that the fact that many in today’s power-based culture believe that power is the key factor which influences the masses. However, something more important trumps power: impact.
Having power is one thing. Having the ability to earn high levels of buy-in by the masses who then turn around and tangibly work to influence change within a particular setting or people group is a more important role than the acquisition of power. Power tends to be focused on gaining capital, whereas with influence it is about making a difference. In many situations, power is given, yet impact is more influential than power because it is earned.”
