The president of Haiti and the president of USA have the same authority, but not the same power. Power, the capacity for violence, the command of force and the control of resources is not enjoyed to the same extent by all leaders. A leader may have more power than the people, but the leader of many and the leader of a few are both leaders. Authority is delegated, power is acquired while leadership is assigned. The judicious use of leadership, power and authority amount to effective rule.
