Fear less in the light,

Fear of the night

Fear of the morning,

Fear of my life,

Fear for those I love and our world,


Fear and fear less-

In the writing

In the prayer before prayer-

In the walking outside up to Shul

In the morning light

Fear gone for now,

Fear in the Middle of the Night

Fear in the middle of the night-

Fear and horrible imaginings-

Fear of my life,

Fear for those I love and our world,

Fear in the early morning

Fear and more fear-

Fear broken a bit by the light,

Fear broken a bit by morning prayer,

Fear broken a bit by ‘learning’,

Fear broken a bit by writing,

Fear broken a bit by morning coffee,

Fear less-

Fear in the neck and in the mind-

Fear down the spine-

Paradox of Power: The things that get us to the very top of the ladder, are the ones that bring us down
Myth 1: power equals cash votes and muscle
"When people try to control others it is a sign that power is slipping"

Myth 2: Machiavellians win in the game of power.
"one's ability to maintain power is the ability to understand and advance the goals of the group"

Myth 3: Power is strategically acquired, not given.
"a person's power is only as strong as the status given to them"

Authorities and Experiments
Authority- the right or power to enforce rules or give orders, somebody or something with official power
Milgram's Obedience Experiment
Asch's Conformity Experiment
- Teacher would shock the Learner every time the Learner gave a wrong/incorrect answer (65% of Teachers were willing to go along with it)
- People obey either out of fear or out of a desire to appear cooperative
-8 individuals (3 commoners, 2 peasants, and 3 officials) were asked to pick which line was the same size as the "chosen" line
- people agreed with what the officials said even if wrong (70%)
- if a commoner was wrong an official quickly corrected them
