There is a vast scientific literature about the political power: historical, sociological, psychological, political sciences. However, not all the problems can be considered by using these notions and categories. The image of power depicted here is based on the intuition, sociological erudition, the historical-philosophical conceptions (by Tucidides, Machiavelli, Erasmus from Rotterdam, Pollard, Hegel, Tocqueville), and on writings of Shakespeare, Tolstoi, Sholokhov, France Kaden-Bandrowski, Feuchtwanger, Canetti, Kazantzakis, Marques, Tiendriakow. In this way I pay attention to the cognitive value of art, which mirrors the reality in the artistic-imagery forms. Power is an attribute of the human beings, animals and of plants’n world. The necessity of struggle stems from its character. This was emphasized particularly by Tucidides, Machiavelli and Shakespeare. From the nature of power results huge responsibility, solitude and dependence. Antoni Kępiński, Alexis de Tocqueville, Elias Canetti, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, among others, have written about these attributes. Not everyone then is suited to govern. One must be keen power and defeat the scruples. Besides, the politics not only attracts undignified people, but also demoralizes them.
