When people are used as means to goals, mutuality in human relationships is undermined. Means to ends exist to be controlled and manipulated as possessions. Means to ends are not supposed to have independent desires or wills. Thus, peoples as means exist to be programmed to behave in accordance to whatever system will promote advancement towards the chosen goals. Such people's leaders may be in conflict over whether or not the people should serve as means to ends. The conflict will center upon who should have power, and what ends that power shall serve. The will of the people will often be a matter of indifference to their objectively oriented leaders. When leaders lose their subjective sensitivity they turn the people into objects to be manipulated by the media, laws, military, adventures, religious exhortations, educational biases, denial of privacy, denial of communal rights, and pleasurable distractions. By focusing attention upon pleasurable consumption of consumer goods, the people can be lead to work hard to pay for the goods---so that they do not have time or inclination to think about what they are doing. By religious exhortations to be ultimately selfish about saving their own souls, people can be given so many inhibitions and made so up-tight that they cannot oppose the guidance of their manipulators. Their frustrations can be given opportunity for expression in preparation for military adventures, if not in actual military adventures. When husband and wife view each other objectively as means to ends, they set the stage for a manipulative relationship. They try to possess each other, and control each other's behavior as if each was their own exclusive possession. Such a view cuts each other off from intimate relationships with diverse people, and so undermines growth of subjective perceptions. Families which are dominated by such manipulative parents inevitably tend to reproduce their own kind, and the cycle of manipulation is repeated. A nation of such families is likely to be a manipulative nation, unable to relate affectively and effectively with other nations. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
