the fall

Lance T. Mason

Power over people is the ability to make one do something he or she would not otherwise do.  There are various types of power, physical, mental, and another one that is not as overt as the aforementioned, but no less impactful. That type of power is social power, which is the potential for social influence.  A person with social power attempts to control the world around them, either positively or negatively. Social status can pave the way for social power. What happens when a person who has tendencies to want to exert his power and control over his spouse earns a high social status? In today’s episode, we will examine a story of domestic violence, about a man who rose to the top of social status in his community only to fall in the most tragic of ways devastating his family along the way.
If you are a victim of domestic violence or feel you might be a victim. You can find help here:
