“One of the great problems of history is that the concepts of love and power have usually been contrasted as opposites – polar opposites (…). Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” – Martin Luther King, Jr., August 16th, 1967, last presidential address to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
