They think righteousness is about individual people, rather than about relationships which entail two and more people. For domineering people it is convenient to think of righteousness in terms of individual people, because then righteousness can be used as a tool with which to dominate vulnerable people; e.g., people who are: weak, sick, thirsty, hungry, homeless, naked, powerless, confused, doubtful, dis-eased, ill-at-ease, women, and children. True righteousness is about people who are in RIGHT "RELATIONSHIPS-of-integration-and-reconciliation" which are characterized by: balance, mutuality, generosity, kindness, gentleness, patience, forbearance, support, respect, tolerance, forgiveness, humility, graciousness, hope, trust, intimacy and love. Evil is about WRONG "RELATIONSHIPS-of-disintegration- and-alienation" characterized by: imbalance, domination, extremism, coercion, violence, abuse, ownership, meanness, viciousness, spitefulness, anger, vengefulness, addictions, dishonesty, secrecy, collusions, codependence, terrorism, war, etc. We will continue to be dominated by WRONG RELATIONSHIPS so long as we fail to agree that domination and domineering people do not merit our respect, honor and support by virtue of any level of success that they have at being more dominant and domineering than others are. Individuals cannot become righteous by being dominant and/or domineering. Neither can relationships become righteous through demonstrations of dominance. Domination is a lose/lose game in which no one truly wins anything. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
