Internalized law enforcement and punishment operate from outside each self. Legalists behave in ways which will occasion the interjection of their systematic program for behavior into persons WHETHER or not it is appropriate to the unique individuals. The conflict between the legalists' definitions of good and evil on the one hand; and each person's unique needs, desires, aspirations, visions, instincts, hopes, etc. on the other hand; thus becomes a conflict within each person. The acceptance of an injunction against certain desires as being legitimately forbidden---makes it impossible for honesty to prevail between self and other on the one hand, and between the dichotomous selves into which each person is fragmented on the other hand. Forbidden desires block communication and occasion dishonesty, deception, collusions, violations of integrity, dichotomies within cultures and selves; i.e., sin. Technocrats as legalists try to eliminate sins by forbidding desires for what they "know" to be "evil". They thereby occasion the sin, blockage of communication, which generates the sins they ostensibly are working to eliminate. When we can not be honest with ourselves and others about what we desire, we become sinful, losing touch with ourselves and others. This is particularly the case when the forbidden desires pertain to subjective states of consciousness which involve vulnerability. For this reason they tend to involve many rules regarding affectionate and sexual relationships---forbidding many of the desires relating to such relationships. The forbidding of those desires makes it difficult, if not impossible, to be honest about those desires. The fragmentation and frustrations thereby generated--- occasion much of the physical and sexual violence which the legalists are attempting to eliminate through the use of inappropriate technologies.
