THE APPROPRIATION OF POLITICAL POWER IN CONTEMPORARY TIME

Jove Jim S. Aguas

 

Abstract:

In this paper, I will focus on the nature and appropriation of political power, and explore the right appropriation of political power given the present political and social condition. I discuss first the nature of political power, and then the three political alternatives in the appropriation of political power, namely, the centralized, the dispersed, and the balanced power. I argue that although there are still states that hold on to the centralized power, given the present political and social condition, the balanced appropriation of political power is the best alternative.
