Organizing is a people working together to get things done. Organizing brings about power. The opposition controls our lives in a number of different ways. Power is exercised through control of resources. Ownership of natural resources/coal, timber, land, water, oil-gives power to set prices, to ensure higher profits, to control supply and demand, and to make the necessities of life scarce. The power of these investments is reinforced by control of the political process.
