Hard power vs. soft power maps quite well onto master-slave vs. producer-consumer relationships. A leadership role can be thought of in terms of proximity to the apex of a hierarchy (master with many slaves and few masters; coercive power) or in terms of centrality in a network (prolific consumer and producer; attractive power).
Hard power is well-suited for directional relationships. A master can use a slave without being affected by the slave's own power. Soft power introduces the risk of reciprocality. A producer must adapt to the consumer's desires, and risks being subverted in the process. Hard power relies on a reservoir of force. Soft power relies on a reservoir of identity.
«Saudi government recently granted citizenship to a female robot. That robot has been able to do things in public that Saudi women, actual human ones, are forbidden from doing. And that's a great example of what happens when you don't believe in real people»
Looking for a topic to write my LL.M. (ie masters degree in law) on. Would like to research on a topic regarding ethical/regulatory challenges associated with emerging technologies. Any suggestions, all you tech guys? Thanks in advance!
@Harry_Pottash indeed. It's a deep weakness in his thinking. Actually it's wealth+happiness if you read other bits, but that's equally reductive since happiness is a fairly lousy construct. Especially the way economists seem to think of it, as something that plateaus after 65k in income based on wellbeing surveys or something
