So, basically what I want is a word for using power in good way. Like opposite for 'abusing power'. Is there a word for that?
I wanted a good word for this sentence - 'The abuse or __ of power results in a collapsing or stable government, respectively'. I considered options like judicious. But nothing seems to properly convey the message. The concept of 'using something productively' seems very fundamental and I thought a fitting word for that would definitely be present.
