Consider the following to see if they make sense within a questionable context? 1. Are powerful people trying to concentrate more power into the hands of already powerful people; e.g., into their own hands, into the hands of "friends", into the hands of other powerful, advantaged and rich people? 2. Is power being taken out of the hands of people who are poor, weak, disadvantaged, sick, dis-eased, immature, disabled, discriminated-against, etc? 3. Are people preoccupied with issues of control? 4. Are people preoccupied with questions of: status, winning, losing, perfection, imperfection, conformity, non-conformity, superiority, inferiority? 5. Are many significant questions and topics of conversation taboo and punishable by condemnations and excommunications? Are such significant questions and topics of possible conversation absent from public conversations? 6. Are there identifiable people who are kept out of important decision making councils where decisions are made which affect their lives adversely; i.e., decisions are made in the absence of any input from them and others who might effectively represent their needs, concerns and fears? 7. Are there identifiable people who are treated primarily in terms of what "class", "cast", "classification", "group-name", "stigma", "mark", or "sign" has been imposed upon them by more powerful people? 8. Are there identifiable people who are systematically denied basic educational opportunities --- kept ignorant and un-skilled and so kept "down and out"? 9. Are their rules and regulations which are arbitrary, capricious, and/or based upon prejudice; rather than on demonstrable clear-and-present-dangers related to past experiences with disintegrative consequences of particular actions and behavior patterns? 10. Are there rules and regulations which are required and enforced by fearful/immature/powerful people --- at the expense of healthy/gracious/weak people who are poor and/or disadvantaged? 11. Are there patterns of behavior which suggest the presence of collusions, addictions and codependent support of them? 12. Are people making the same mistakes over and over again --- not learning from the naturally bitter fruits of past mistakes? 13. Are the bitter fruits of past "mistakes" contrived by powerful people who are immature and unable to tolerate healthy growth, honest questions, and open discussions of creative differences among healthy and inquisitive people?
