Physical influence

Along with the power of resources - money, personality, expertise Charles Handy lists physical power, the power of 'might' in the life of an organisation. To be honest I never expected but can understand the last paragraph:

"Whilst physical power is less respectable in our society than all other power sources there are signs that it is increasingly becoming the power of last resort when the other sources appear ineffective, or too closely balanced against opposing sources. Ulster, lock-outs, mass demonstrations are all examples of this phenomenon."
