Locations and forms of power

In order to start my presentation about the notion Locations and forms of Power, I will, first, define it.

Locations could be important buildings or institutions that represent a certain form of power, for example Buckingham Palace which is a symbol of the American presidency. A location can also be a country or a state, like the USA which is a state powerful enough to influence events throughout the world and China is a major economic power in today's world.

Power is the ability to control others, evnts, or ressources. The aliby to make things happen despite obstacles, resistance, or opposition. This of course leads to conflict between those who have power and those who don't.

To my mind, the documents which seem the best to illustrate the notion are the song In your hands and the recording Look into my eyes.

I'm going now to sum up my 1st document. In your hands is about the story of an immigrant who went to the united States to earn a living and send money back to his parents who stayed in their Motherland. This song raises the problem of the immigration office which refuses to give him american citizenship, that's why he emphasizes that he can't find a job. The author Charlie Winston critizises it by reveals that the brother's immigrant is going to die.

This document is a perfect illustration of the notion Locations and forms of power because it tells the story of an immigrant in a places : the USA, and related the power of the immigration office.

Now i'm going to move on my 2nd document : Look into my eyes. This recording is about a meeting between Kenny Craig, a hypnotist and a woman. The meeting takes place in an Asian restaurant and both of them are studying the menu. The woman would like to have an expensive dish, so Kenny hypnotises her to change her mind and it worked.

Let me explain why this document is an excellent illustration of this notion : 1st, the location is the restaurant which the story takes place, and more, the way Kenny manipulates the woman proves a certain form of power.
