Compulsively objective people are not free to approach their personal relationships and themselves within such relationships---without the bias of their compulsive objectivity. Objectivity is their bias: it imprisons them and keeps them from entering into personal relationships. People who are imprisoned by objectivity can not be in dialogue with people who are not so imprisoned; they are not free to learn new things which transcend their bias. Their bias makes them approach personal situations in ways which make personal conflict resolution impossible. Instead they seek technocratic solutions to the technical problems/dilemmas which they perceive to exist in human relations; thereby intensifying the nature, extent and risk of ideological conflicts which they often objectify and treat as objective realities which are beyond human control. The people who serve the devil on the wrong side of the conflict---must be destroyed to rid the world of evil. Evil is regarded as an objective reality, like dirt, and it must be eliminated until the world is free of it. They can not perceive the personal consequences of attempting to carry their program to its logical conclusions. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
