That which seems desirable to one, is seen as dangerous to the other; and vice versa. The goals of one, are inconsistent with the goals of the other; and vice versa. HUMILITY ARROGANCE GENTLENESS DOMINANCE VULNERABILITY SECURITY SANCTUARY DEFENSIVE PROBABILITY CERTAINTY FRIENDSHIP LOYALTY INTIMACY OBEDIENCE LISTENING DEMANDING PARADOXES FACTS POINTINGS ASSERTIONS DESCRIPTIONS PROCLAMATIONS SHARING ACCUMULATING GIVING POSSESSION COOPERATION COMPETITION FELLOWSHIP WINNING DIALOGUE INDOCTRINATION LISTENING TELLING Domineering people perceive danger in the left column, and hopes for the achievement of security in the right column. True lovers perceive the threats of alienation in the right column, and hopes for the enjoyment of secure personal and communal integrity in the left column. The life-styles of domineering people and of true lovers are antithetical to each other --- based upon conflicting theses and ideals. It follows that domineering people and true lovers will find themselves in conflict with each other over what is right, true, good, proper, desirable, and of great importance in various situations --- because they disagree about what is overall of great and/or ultimate importance. They probably have not articulated what is of great and/or ultimate importance --- especially so for domineering people. Domineering people are usually playing collusive games of mutual self deception ---according to the rules of which honesty about what is of ultimate importance is forbidden; i.e., the rules of the game must be kept hidden, secret and/or obscure. They must be dishonest about their secrecy and dishonest --- in order to appear respectable, worthy of honor and worthy of support. The conflict between the religious/political leaders of Jesus' days on planet Earth, and Jesus' teachings and role modeling ---- is illustrative of the conflict between domineering people and true lovers. It is said that God is Love. That saying points to a truth which domineering religious leaders feel obliged to obscure, confuse, transform, mis-interpret, and abuse. Thus they abuse the truth and those who demonstrate the truth through life-styles which expose the lack of integrity within domineering people, their life- styles and their "Domination Systems".
