Contrasts may be relatively un-related to each other--- even when it seems "obvious" that there will be a high level of correlation. Any assumption, belief, or conviction that there is a correlation between contrasts related to dichotomies---needs to be checked to make sure that both the theory and the facts support in a coherent way the assumption, belief and/or conviction. Not all "evil" people are rebellious. Not all "good" people are conformists. Not all "evil" people are offensive. Not all "good" people are worthy of respect. Not all "evil" people are disobedient. Not all "good" people are obedient. Not all "evil" people generate chaos. Not all "good" people create order. Not all order is "good". Not all obedience is good. Not all rebellion is evil. Beware of assuming simple correlations and beware of people acting as if it is safe to be guided by such assumptions! (c) 2005 by Paul A.
