A felt responsibility to control people. A preoccupation with control of people. Technologies designed to control people's behaviors. Respect for people who show evidence of the above. Rewards given to people who show the above symptoms. Fear of loss of the above symptoms of dis-ease. Confusing "being in love", with falling into a diseased relationship of intensification of the above symptoms. Efforts at being in control of people are evil; because they all lead to dishonest manipulation, coercion, violence, rejection, alienation, estrangement; and to disintegration of dialogue, soul, spirit, community and integrity in general. People and communities that are the victims of control diseases are preoccupied with technical questions, means and resources. They cannot distinguish between technical questions, and questions relating to the value of various genuine alternative approaches to human dilemmas. They are confused because in their perception different things are fused, and seem to be the same things. They fear the loss of their symptoms of control diseases, for they are addicted to the whole pattern of behavior associated with those symptoms. They respect and seek to fulfill all the possibilities of their symptoms of disease. They are disintegrating, and cannot perceive their disintegration, because they have been blinded by their disease. People who are disintegrating often perceive people of integrity as having and owning something which is missing from their own lives of disintegration. They seek to acquire and gain control of that missing ingredient, by gaining control of those people who seem to have the missing ingredient. The missing ingredient is the LACK OF PREOCCUPATION with control. Those who are preoccupied with control cannot perceive the nature of the missing ingredient, and how it leads to the serenity and tranquility which they seek to acquire, own and control.
