Often we attempt to say "NO" to "The Domination System" --- while letting "The Domination System" govern the ways in which we attempt to say "NO". We say "no" in ways which involve us in futile efforts to be: DOMINANT, SUPERIOR, IN-CONTROL --- over others whom we regard as sinful, evil, bad, wrong, fools, inferior, dammed, etc. Liberation from "The Domination System" entails us saying "NO" to "The Domination System's ways of trying to govern us so that we play collusive games of mutual self deception regarding OUR trying to say "NO" --- to "The Domination System" and all of its intelligent (but tragically misguided) dominant-leaders --- whose ways are tragically dominating us to use --- our own contentious ways --- to eliminate evil, sin, and rebellions --- against OUR OWN attempts --- to DOMINATE others who are inferior to US. We are SUPERIOR. They are inferior. God knows that, as we know it. We cannot become liberated from "The Domination System" by fighting any kind of war with any kinds of weapons, against any kinds of enemies anywhere. "The Domination System" is not "over there", "outside us", "inside them", "far from us". "The Domination System" works inside of us in how we approach each other, relate to/with each other, think about each other, react/respond to/with each other, judge/forgive each other, feel about/with each other, etc. "The Domination System" succeeds within us as we try to respond to IT as an external reality which is separate from us and our ways of dealing with IT as separate from our I-IT relationships -- which dominate us because we have said NO to I-THOU RELATIONSHIPS which entail being safely vulnerable within intimate relationships which are not dominated by "The Domination" System" within our imperfect RELATIONSHIPS. Martin Buber pointed to much of this in his writing "I and Thou" for the benefit of his own children. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
