    Power can look many different ways. I think often times our culture emphasizes that money is power. But we see time and time again, money does not buy happiness. In a way, I think this is what Harper is getting at in her use of Radah. I think there is a lot of power held in happiness. A positive example of this is creating space for the voices of the marginalized to be heard. There is nothing to be gained personally by doing this, we are all already equally powerful. Whether this is in social circles or corporate ventures, providing platforms for different opinions and voices allows power to be seen. Negatively, I think the abuse of dominion is manipulation. Leading others away from truth or seeking personal gain as a result of exercising power. I have seen in my life when I have exercised dominion in the wrong ways, I am actually at my most vulnerable.
