The 11th Law of Power is “Learn to keep people dependent on you.”

How to Empower Yourself and Re-Discover Freedom!: The definition of the word ‘power’ according to Oxford Dictionary is “…the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events. Political or social authority or control, especially that exercised by a government.”




The 48 Laws of Power is a very popular book that was written by author Robert Green. On a street side note, besides being popular among corporate executives and the general public, this particular book is popular amongst current street hustlers. It is incredibly educational to read and provides a unique perspective and ‘ingredient’ list of the laws of ‘power’ as implemented by the most ‘powerful’ (and ill-meaning) people of our time throughout our most recent history. If you don’t have the time to read it, I believe that the 11th law of power sums it all up. It is the most crucial to understand in order to get your mind to comprehend why ‘power’ or ‘authority’ as we know it today, is a crumbling illusion we naively bought into. This is good news everybody, keep reading and I will explain why!




The 11th Law of Power is “Learn to keep people dependent on you.” ”What makes you powerful is not your skill nor force but your ability to create a relationship of dependence. People can not get rid of you when they need you. When people extremely depend on you, even though they are on the higher position, you hold the power over all of them… People usually depend on you whenever they feel that you can secure them. Thus, impress others that you are the only one to secure them and there are no substitutes.” Mark Twain once said: “It is easier to fool people than to convince then that they have been fooled.”









Bottom line: those who wish to impose dependence on others, are attempting to control or bamboozle them. And where is the good in that? Before your mind jumps to the programmed ‘it’s for our own good, it’s for our own protection, its for national security’, please let me re-quote Mr. Green on Law 11: ”People usually depend on you whenever they feel that you can secure them. Thus, impress others that you are the only one to secure them and there are no substitutes.” See where I’m going with this?… You might as well replace the politically correct word ‘impress’ with ‘bamboozle.’
