In order to have and enjoy a meaningful life, to be important, to make a significant difference --- we must be "in charge", "in control", "most powerful", "dominant", "wealthy", "free of manual labor", "favorably viewed", "favorably regarded", "favorably commented upon", etc. 2. Only relatively few people can enjoy having meaningful lives; and we should be among those few. 3. It is impossible for us to meet the above conditions unless we impose standardization upon people who are less: important, powerful, dominant, wealthy, free, favored, etc. 4. The acceptance and support of our standards shall serve as "signs", "tokens", "signals" of our subjects' acceptance of our importance, controls, power and domination; leading to favors which we will bestow upon them in accordance with our rule, rules, and laws --- so long as they faithfully carry their part of "our deal". 5. It is impractical to meet the above conditions within large populations and territories; so we will agree among ourselves about who will rule and be in control --- within our various neighborhoods, turfs, cities, states, and nations. There must be systems of casts, job- assignments, power-dispensations, ranks, hierarchies, etc. --- to keep people in their proper places and assigned roles. 6. Creativity and personal initiatives are dangerous --- because they are likely to upset our carefully constructed system of controls and inter-linked power centers. We must carefully control creativity, initiatives, independent thought; and independent desires, hopes and aspirations. 7. There must be standardization of thoughts, desires, hopes, aspiration and personal relationships. Departures from our standards will threaten our security. Departures from our standards must not be tolerated. Our obedient workers must maintain our standards without fail at all times and places; else we will "lose face". 8. The more people who look upon us favorably, the "more face" we will have; and the more power to be in firm control of our various neighborhoods, turfs, cities, states, and nations. We must organize very carefully to maintain control and our favorable attention. 9. There are some people who seek to expose our plan. We must do everything in our power to undermine their credibility and the possibility of them gaining favorable attention at our expense. Those who stand out and receive sympathy must be arrested and crucified. Any religious group which shows sympathy for them must be crushed in grand public displays of our power to be in control. 10. We will be grander if we invade the territories of our competitors to the north, east, south and west. We must maintain standing armies of well disciplined soldiers who will be organized into loyal teams to work together in support of our "Domination System" which is dedicated to maintaining good Laws and Orders.
