By becoming domineering people who manage superior "Domination Systems"? By being "better" at dominating people, for "better" reasons, with "better" technologies? No, for trying to do so is to surrender to and adopt as our own --- the attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, myths and thought patterns of domineering people! In such attempts we are bound to become dishonest, collusive, addictive and codependent supporters of "Domination Systems." 2. By becoming passive people willing to submit to and suffer in silence under "Domination Systems" and their domineering supporters --- not resisting them in any way? No, for in doing so we give to them significant amounts of respect, honor and support. We will become unable to know whom we can trust as honest, gentle, humble, hopeful, healthy peacemakers. 3. By forming secret societies of superior people who share with each other secret knowledge of terrible domineering people and their "Domination Systems"? By forming self-righteous societies who speak the truths with each other about how terrible "they" are? No, for in doing so we would adopt patterns of arrogance, self- righteousness, judgementalism, excommunications, and other foundations for the formation of our own superior "Domination System" within our own exclusive groups. 4. By perceiving, understanding and subverting the ways of domineering people and their "Domination Systems" --- in honest, gentle, gracious, humble, integrative ways illustrated by honored leaders in non-violent revolutions; e.g., Jesus of Nazareth, Gandhi of India, Martin Luther King of Montgomery, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, etc. For an analysis of this practical alternative see the paperback book "The Powers That Be" by Walter Wink. Non- violent is not easy, but it has been used with enduring success many times to liberate, by Wink's reckoning, a majority of the people on planet Earth. His brief book and others written by him are worth careful examinations and thoughtful consideration. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
