I’m here to help you understand power.

To have a better understanding of the world and how it works, you need to understand how power works.

Power is not an institution, and not a structure; neither is it a certain strength we are endowed with; it is the name that one attributes to a complex strategical situation in a particular society.

My name is Reece George. I studied power in my 2nd Ph.D., to make some sense of why Indigenous Australian peoples still have a 10-year shorter life span, even though the government has spent billions of dollars on health programs.

In short, I found that the answer lies in the complex situation of racial power. Yet, power is rarely discussed as a subject and is even less understood. I’ll try to explain what I know about power on this website.
