Power and Politics Within Organization

There is much talk in this country about a national ID card to be used by government entities, to manage various programs, including illegal immigration, health care, criminals, and so on. I am dismayed how naive people supporting this concept are, and for a good reason. They have not witnessed the potential misuse of it, especially when the government has too much power.
It's more difficult to speak on the topic of power than it is to speak on money. We all believe in universal presence of power and its strength in determining all situations. While establishing any organization powers are assigned on relatively different perspectives. Mangers need a power to achieve his goals by using available resources.
The California budget crunch has a lot of San Diego residents worried about what will happen in the near future to the home they love. If you love California, you appreciate the state's beautiful beaches, national parks and monuments, decadent cuisine, multicultural identity, fresh seafood, natural beauty, historical missions, legendary nightlife, and incredible career opportunities.
Whenever we hear the word politics - negative thoughts come up in almost everyone's mind. Politics becomes bad when there is hidden agenda, using power and influence to further your personal interests, maligning your colleagues etc. Following are examples of bad politics.
Social media has changed politics in many ways. Bad words in any small land community can become national television news when someone decides to share an interview through YouTube. Prime Minister Gordon Brown discovered that during the recent elections when he forgot to remove a microphone that afterward showed inappropriate words about an inquisitive lady that asked questions he didn't like.
Offering help when you know someone is struggling to complete a task. Take the initiative and offer your assistance. This is an excellent way to break the ice with someone whom you don't have rapport with you. This is one good way to build a good working relationship. He will be grateful for your help and earn a place in his good books.
Were feds responsible in any way for what took place at the April 20, 2010 explosion and fire on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig? After the fact, what's the appropriate role for the federal government in getting the well plugged and cleaning up the mess?
There is no need for conspiracy theories to know some power start this forced march to Globalization where workers become the commodities. In essence it is a new kind of slave trade with wage slave labor. Thomas Friedman seems to like leading the march.
The concept of political elite makes some sense but in reality this is already the case. We have in the U.S. a pseudo-democracy in the sense that all of the candidates are known but few, except the elite, know what the candidates stand for. Democracy, in its early American terms, meant that politics was done on a local basis.;u=6634;u=5139;u=9491;u=8797;u=3183
