Forms of Power
The various constituents of power are always bound together in some form or another to make up concrete power. What binds them together are the rights possessed by certain groups. The rights possessed by such groups unite the various constituents of power and form the concrete powers of these groups. However, there are various aspects to these rights, and it would be difficult to deal with them all exhaustively here. I shall therefore cite only the most typical of them. What I shall explain here are the concrete forms of power in the sense that I indicated previously. This concreteness resides chiefly in the persons to whom power belongs, and is therefore determined by the rights they enjoy. So, then, how are we to consider some of the typical rights of representative groups?
