When such notions are carried over into the personal domain there are bound to be perversion---regardless of good intentions, sophisticated methods, and general social approval. When people believe that persons can have legitimate rights to control each other's friendships, affections, emotions, subjective lives, and personal communications---then the participants in those beliefs are bound to experience perverted personal lives. Those who exercise such power of control and those who submit to it are perverted---along with those who rationalize it and justify it through sophisticated cognitive studies which show it is in the natural order of nature---as slavery was for many years and as male dominance continues to be, along with cognitive dominance over affection. Property rights can not helpfully be extended to cover personal relationships. Experiments have shown that slavery of people to each other for purposes of control of objective service is not viable. Much less viable is slavery of people to each other for purposes of subjective service---regardless of the manner of sale, control, exchange, and justification. People were not created to control each other, but to love each other. Subtle covert control is not "better" than overt control. Control motivated by a desire to "do good" to the other---is no better than control motivated by a desire to "get goods" from the other. Personal control is judged by the alienation which it occasions. People who enter into personal control relationships do not communicate freely and openly with each other; they seek techniques to manipulate each other, techniques which can not be effective if they are used openly. Personal control relationships promote secrecy, even to the extreme of the secrecy of collusions in which the participants do not know their own secrets. The alienation of personal control relationships will not be transcended by clarification of the rights of participants in the relationships. Only a transcendence of the presuppositions through love will help the participants transcend their alienations. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
