Giving a hungry person bread is appeasement
Teaching him to bake bread is empowerment
Appeasement makes you dependent and weak, always whining and servile
Empowerment makes you strong and independent
When you do appeasement, and solve one problem for someone, that person/community will come up with 30 more
When you do empowerment you dont solve any problem, but you nudge the person/community into coming up with ideas and solutions to solve their own problems, then when you pose a problem to them, they come up with 30 solutions :)
Appeasement gets you votes and its short sighted at best
Empowerment will make the country great… and takes time, and will eventually make you a legend!
