It is easier to manipulate authoritarian interpretations of ancient laws, rules, regulations and scriptures --- than to manipulate people's perceptions and understandings of their own contemporary humane experiences. Thus from controllers' point of view the emphasis should be placed upon authoritative sources in the past --- and to place doubt upon contemporary human experiences. Addictive leaders who are preoccupied with issues of control often play collusive games of mutual self deception regarding how reliable contemporary humane experiences are. They fear the promptings of Love which are not and cannot be under their control. They fear Love because Love often exposes dishonesty, deception and coercion --- three essential ingredients in their most "successful" collusive games of mutual self-deception. Authoritarians do not respect and are not committed to personal and communal integrity --- for integrative persons and communities do not respect, honor, support or tolerate occasions of dishonesty, deception or coercion when they are used by manipulative authoritarians to maintain appearances of control.
