SOCIETY AND CHANGE 3 (Klein, 2015. P. 65). Such statements show that instituting changes can be harboured by political environment of an organization, county, state or region. This situation happens when the political perspective focus on safeguarding their interests above the interests of the community. Apart from, nations, powerful organizations can also limit change advanced by an individual or an organization. The institutions leverage their influence and power to veto any steps being taken or place embargos to programs that can bring change leading to maintenance of the undesirable status quo. For instance, there have been distortions that have limited adoption of green strategies among different Asian and western countries. As solution “cope with these distortions (which the WTO has made no attempt to correct), governments need to take a range of aggressive steps— from price guarantees to straight subsidies—so that green energy has a fair shot at competing” (Klein, 2015. p. 70). This is an example depicting constraints faced when implementing change under the watch of powerful organizations. This barrier is commonplace and stifles people’s ability to drive radical changes in society such as adoption of renewable and green energy. Despite climate change being an important issue in society, powerful organizations have used policy to subsidize fossil fuels while significantly reducing subsidies changed towards renewable energy. To institute change in jurisdictions served by such organizations, people face policy barriers and established laws; hence, an individual needs to lobby against such laws to succeed in bringing change. Another barrier that impedes change implementation is resistance to change.
