Public Relations And Power

It is no secret that those in public relations sectors who have control over information and manages it, gain power. Max Weber said it best when he stated publicly, "In facing" the house of representatives, "a bureaucracy, through sure power instinct, fights every attempt of the parliament to obtain knowledge."

How true these words ring in our ears. Because of these words, as well as other aspects of these facts, the world is revolving rapidly into the field of knowledge to improve public relations.

Despite that, it is a proven fact that knowledge is strength, many public relation officers believe that being in office is power. Contrary to their notion, without knowledge, administrative officers are sure to fail as the system weakens overtime.

It was noted that relationships amid complex organizational in public relations whereas politics hold office, there appears to be more power. In the public relations educational sector, superintendents on school boards tend to have more power than educational officials in larger cities.

Suburban superintendents seem to have less control. On the same token, managers in larger cities tend to have more power over the managers in smaller areas. There is no mistake that "knowledge is power."

In fact, we see this power brought out in some of the famous people that spoke publicly, which include Martin Luther King Jr. and Bill Clinton. These men made a difference by showing their power of knowledge.

Woodrow Wilson also made a difference. Wilson is started the foundation for the early public relations. In an early publication, Wilson pointed out that building resources could expand and strengthen the public relations.
