They should be asked to prove that the benefits to be gained by regulating dialogue are greater than the costs which are likely to be occasioned by the consequent alienation. It is not helpful to begin with the premise that dialogue of any form is evil, and must be justified. Innocence should be presumed initially as regards participants in intimate dialogue, and demand proof of innocence, is to occasion sin. Dialogue is mutual. Where mutuality is absent there is no true dialogue. Innocence need not be presumed where mutuality is absent; innocence may be presumed to the extent that mutuality is present. A participant's objection to some assumption that another insists must be made---is undeniable evidence that mutuality is not present. If Jill says she is not in mutual dialogue with Jack, but Jack contends that they are in mutual dialogue---it is absurd to believe Jack, no matter how powerful Jack, is and not matter how loudly and threateningly he protests that his relationship with Jill is mutual. Jack and Jill may contend that their relationship is mutual, even though it is not. Jack may have been threatened by Jill, and under threat say that his relationship with Jill is mutual, even though he knows it is not. The contention that a relationships is mutual is not undeniable evidence that it is mutual. Consistent public behavior which consistently indicates mutuality in a relationship is more reliable evidence that a relationship between two people is mutual. Regulations of communication will not assure mutuality of dialogue between regulated persons. The regulations are as likely to occasion alienation as they are to occasion mutuality. When mutuality is occasioned by regulations it as likely to be in union against the regulators as any other kind of union---the regulation occasions alienation between the regulators and the regulated. Thus efforts to regulate dialogue to promote mutuality will undermine mutuality between regulators and the regulated. Regulation of dialogue does not promote true dialogue. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
