Abuse of people isn’t proof of power

In “The Godfather,” as Marlon Brando sits behind his desk and people come to him to ask for help, one guy walked in and begged that the Godfather would get him justice for his child for being abused and raped. The Godfather replies that he will have it taken care of.

The whole movie was made to show power and the psychology of powerful people.

The opposite of power would be weakness, so a movie about weakness would most surely show a person was was abusing and breaking people’s personal boundaries.

If people use abuse long enough with success, they might think its sophisticated and the way to make money. But it’s weakness.
