Many people are preoccupied with control and have a generally positive disposition toward all kinds of control so long as they see themselves as in control or close to those who are in control. How we respond to the appearance or reality of control depends upon how open, honest, wise, and understanding we are about the various kinds of control and the consequences of the existence of the appearance or reality of control. As we observe the appearance or reality of each kind of control we need to seek insight into the motives, motivations, purposes, aims, attitudes and assumptions of the people most closely associated with control. For what control brings depends upon such reflexive realities to a large extent. What control brings does not necessarily depend upon objective realities. As we observe the appearance or reality of each kind of control we need to ask if any of the following words may appropriately be used to describe the kind of control which we observe: IDOLATROUS UNNECESSARY ALIENATIVE REJECTIVE ILLEGAL IMMORAL UNETHICAL DEFENSIVE EVIL EXCOMMUNICATIVE DISINTEGRATIVE DISHONEST MANIPULATIVE PERSONAL UNBALANCED UNJUST REFLEXIVE COLLUSIVE ADDICTIVE CODEPENDENT UNHEALTHY OBJECTIVE SPIRITUAL PRAYERFUL Honest meditating upon the possible propriety of the use of the above words in describing instances of apparent or real control may help us to be wise in how we respond to what we observe.
