If you turn the pages of history, you will witness a number of authoritative and vigorous personalities. These people are generally the elected candidates we voted for. The constitution of respective countries has vested powers in them. However, when it comes to power, there are various times when we have seen people miles away from politics exercise the power that came to them from their business. There are certain times when these people are considered quite influential, and the huge following is the primary source of their power. The people in power are often seen to completely ignore the gravity of their actions and how rippling they could get. There are certain times when a decision by a president has ended up instigating war for more than a few years. And, if we turn to the economic damages, it would end up being an hour’s read.
