A coercive "paradigm" defines what is "in" and what is "out"; respectable or ridiculed. People who do NOT respect the boundaries are rejected, "out". People who DO respect the boundaries are accepted, "in" --- but only so long as they show solid respect for the boundaries of the "paradigm" Similarly a "paradigm" can be characterized by the tools, technologies, resources, concepts, attitudes, thoughts, desires, hopes, aspirations, fears --- which are "required" or "forbidden". Some paradigms are maintained by supporters who play collusive games of mutual self deception --- about how universally relevant their paradigms are; perhaps claiming that their ranges of relevance are unlimited. Supporters of a coercive paradigm may worship their paradigm as an idol, a god, a proper focus of ultimate concern and worship. They are idolaters who are dishonest and lack personal and communal integrity; and undermine personal and communal integrity. Within the boundaries of a "Domination System" paradigm --- it is undeniable true that: 1. At all times in all places and circumstances there must be some person or small group of persons who is or should be "in charge", "in control", "dominant", "in authority". 2. It is the privilege, right and duty of such dominant people to maintain law and order --- by fighting effectively against the fearsome forces of: chaos, disorder, disrespect, evil, devils, doubt, uncertainty, disobedience, non-conformity, etc. God is on their team. 3. For each properly framed question there is always one right answer, and one wrong answer; no more. Dichotomous questions, answers and thinking are mandatory. Others kinds of questions and thinking are forbidden. 4. Proper behavior is not natural. Proper behavior must be prescribed; and people must be forced to behave properly by domineering people who know for sure what is proper and what is improper. People are born with original sin and must be forced into being "good" by "good" people who know that they are already "good". Such "good" people know how to make "evil" people be "good", "or else". 5. So long as people do not call the above into question --- they are permitted to disagree on minor matters which do not call the above into question. In fact people are often encouraged to engage in contentious conflicts to distract attention away from the above considerations. Contentious conflicts serve to promote: prejudices, ignorance, confusion, misunderstandings, blocked-communications, forgetfulness, resentments, anger, revenge, fear, anxieties, etc. --- which make it easy to dominate the victims thereof. 6. People who step outside the boundaries of a collusive paradigm are condemned, excommunicated, ignored, ridiculed, banished or crucified --- in order to protect the "integrity" of the paradigm and so to protect "law" and "order" as maintained by the domineering leaders of the collusive paradigm who "know not what they do."
