Suppose that such faithful servants are idolatrous worshipers of "The Domination System" and that as is usually the case with idolaters, they refuse to acknowledge truths and integrities which are complementary to their own. In keeping with these suppositions/hypotheses it would be reasonable to expect such faithful servants to: 1. Be willing to attack and sacrifice other people's complementary truths and integrities --- in the service of their God = "The Domination System". 2. Use dishonesty, deception, coercion, violence, and many more alienative tools to advance their "cause." 3. Be suspicious about and not well informed about people who are "different" --- because their alienation from such people will block all reliable mutually balanced communications between them and such "different" people. 4. Regard themselves as superior to people who are "different" and unwilling to conform to prescribed: attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, rituals, and behavior patterns. 5. Be focused upon absolutes which are defined by "The Domination System" --- rather than upon facilitating and promoting intimate relationships which are characterized by: balance, mutuality, dialogue, listening, cooperation, conflict-resolution, honesty, gentleness, peacemaking, etc. How can we be sure that given the indicated assumptions in the formulation of the hypothesis --- the discovery of "real" people who appear to be faithful servants of an apparently real "Domination System" --- is not a self-fulfilling prophecy? How are such people to be convinced that they have been treated fairly and honestly? (c) 2005 by Paul A.
