Since the beginning of time, power has been an issue in many different ways; how to gain it, how to keep it, how to destroy it. According to Michel Foucault, "power is productive". Power is what molds society into what is, and what it should be. Foucault believed that through repression, domination and control, power creates society. Power relations operate and exist through people. Through the use of institutions, such as school, work and family, power is able to mold us into who we are as a people.
