What is authority? Who has it? Why do people need it? Google defines authority as “the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience” There are many people who have this thing called “authority”. Police officers, medical staff, parents, the elderly, supervisors. These are the kind of people who have authority and enforce obedience to those who are lower in rank and/or age. Authority is given to people who have shown to have experience in a specific field, allowing them to as Google says, to give orders. But where does this leave you? The average person just trying to live life? What happens to those who have no authority?
