Healthy people instinctively rebel against manipulations designed to try to control them; for control is unhealthy. When healthy young people rebel against the manipulative efforts of their parents to control them through the imposition of dishonest codes of behavior, the young people are inevitably confused, and find it difficult to distinguish between disintegrative behavior and integrative behavior. It is not helpful for respectable people to try to use manipulations in efforts to make people behave like they "should". Such manipulations confuse the issues and invite rebellion. Healthy young people and healthy mature people are programmed by God to avoid such manipulations as disintegrative; yet the maneuvers which often are used to avoid such manipulations are themselves unhealthy, even though not as unhealthy as meekly submitting to being victimized by the manipulators. People who try to make other people conform to some moral code often fail to be open and honest about themselves, and fail to work to provide contexts in which others will feel secure in being open and honest about themselves. In the absence of such secure contexts no moral code or system of ethics is of much help to anybody. Thus the people who seek to impose such codes and systems do not merit respect or support.
