Personal vulnerability undermines the technocrats' presumed source of security; i.e., self control. To the technocrat security flows from the knowledge of good and evil, and of the techniques to defeat evil and defend good---thereby fulfilling proper expectations. To permit vulnerability is to grant evil an opportunity to undermine a systematic program for achieving good. The technocrat is thus threatened even by others' relationships which involve personal vulnerability. The technocrat as legalist tends to prohibit vulnerability by prohibiting personal relationships which involve vulnerability. The technocrat tends to regard responsibility in legalistic terms---usually with an individualistic rather than a corporate emphasis. To be responsible means to be in control as an individual; it does not mean being a vulnerable participant in a union which transcends the participants. Thus the technocratic society tends to be an individualistic alienative society, even if it pays lip service to the ideals of love, socialism, communism, and/or solidarity with the communal welfare. In a technocratic society personal vulnerability to non- technical relationships is repressed in favor of vulnerability to non-personal technical requirements. Personal vulnerability is an essential aspect of meaningful: emotional growth, personal meeting, expressions of physical affection, sexual relationships, intellectual intimacy, and communal living. The prohibition of vulnerability undermines the meaning and integrity of all processes in which vulnerability is an essential ingredient. Legalistic requirements and/or skillful manipulation can not substitute in ways which will assure the fulfillment of meaningful relationships with integrity. Fulfillment is impossible without taking the risks involved in personally trusting others within highly vulnerable relationships. To prohibit vulnerability is to prohibit Love. God is Love. Love is the Power which unconditionally promotes meaningful dialogue. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
