How easy is life when we give ourselves no power? Regardless of how bad a situation is, if you have no power there is nothing to do. No decisions to make. You can’t affect the outcome in any way so why bother doing anything? Keep your head down and make no waves.
The problem with this is it is based on an illusion. The illusion that the “powerful” always win and that the little guy has no recourse. The law gives us the power to take on the richest corporations.
