Prescriptions and proscriptions are unlikely to serve to control such people's dishonest behaviors; or to prevent the disintegrative consequences of their behaviors. They are experts in manipulative procedures --- which often entail the use of coercion, violence and dishonesty. There is no point in trying to beat them at their own kind of game. In making such a effort those who try to control them --- by trying to beat them at their own kind of game, become like the people they are trying to control. 2. The people who are playing collusive games of mutual self deception are terrified at the possibility that their games will be exposed through the public presentation of accurate descriptions of what it is that they are doing. They want (at all costs) to avoid having to openly and honestly respond to accurate descriptions of their dishonest patterns of behavior. They want to drag others into their games; to avoid having the light of truth falling upon them and exposing their dark ways. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
