    Coercion: Why We Listen to What "They" Say af Douglas Rushkoff (elenchus)
    elenchus: Gaventa proposes three dimensions of power, from the familiar physical force of the 1st dimension, to the more subtle forms of the 2nd and 3rd dimensions.

And that for the powerful to maintain power takes not a lot of effort.

It's not just the powerful setting the agenda. It's them writing the language the agenda's written in. ( )
