There are several ways one can achieve this: you can coerce them with threats; you can induce them with payments; or you can attract and co-opt them to want what you want. This soft power — getting others to want the outcomes you want — co-opts people rather than coerces them.
Hard power is the use of military and economic means to influence the behavior or interests of other political bodies. According to Joseph Nye , hard power involves "the ability to use the carrots and sticks of economic and military might to make others follow your will". On the other hand, "sticks" represent threats - including the use of coercive diplomacy , the threat of military intervention , or the implementation of economic sanctions. Ernest Wilson describes hard power as the capacity to coerce "another to act in ways in which that entity would not have acted otherwise". While the existence of hard power has a long history, the term itself arose when Joseph Nye coined soft power as a new and different form of power in a sovereign state 's foreign policy. Hard power encompasses a wide range of coercive policies, such as coercive diplomacy , economic sanctions , military action , and the forming of military alliances for deterrence and mutual defense.

Пьер Клушар спал глубоким сном и не видел склонившегося над ним человека. Игла похищенного у медсестры шприца блеснула в темноте и погрузилась в вену чуть выше запястья Клушара. Шприц был наполнен тридцатью кубиками моющего средства, взятого с тележки уборщицы. Сильный палец нажал на плунжер, вытолкнув синеватую жидкость в старческую вену.
Это был Хейл, примчавшийся на звук пейджера. Сьюзан услышала стук беретты, выпавшей из руки Стратмора. На мгновение она словно приросла к месту, не зная, куда бежать и что делать.
