Why do domineering people NOT want us to untie their precious KNOTS which stand in the way of us being involved in open and honest dialogue about our most meaningful and precious intimate ways of being cooperative/intimate? What harm would come from us telling ourselves and each other honest stories about how we have best gotten to know ourselves and each other --- through relationships which have been open, honest authentic, and descriptive in accurate and gentle ways? Who would be harmed? Why would they feel as if harmed? Is the harm which they would feel, rooted and grounded in objective realities; or in a set of realities which are rooted and grounded in their collusive games of mutual self deception; all of which are brittle and likely to shatter in the presence of intimate ways of TRUTH & LOVE in FAITH ONE 1 ? Can any one or more rules and/or regulations be articulated openly and honestly to give us the keys to untie the Gordian NOTS of fear-full domineering people who cannot stand to know that other people are cooperating together in telling each other true stories about how they have enjoyed being together in cooperative endeavors which were open, honest, gentle, gracious, respect-full, balanced, reconciling, healing, integrative, hopeful, faithful, and transcending domineering ones' collusive ways of deception and failure? Why knot ever do so? To help each fear-full other untie the Gordian Knot inside which we have imprisoned ourselves, we must understand how and why we fear each other and what each other fear-full person values. But that is un-thinkable; because letting others know how and why we fear them, is to give them the tools with which to manipulate, dominate, violate and coercive us into submission to their evil domination. It is better for we the good-guys to dominate them, the evil-guys, and their subversive gals, who in solidarity with the evil-guys seek to seduce us the good-guys of God. Our Domination System is a good System! Their Domination System is all evil and of the DEVIL! Destroy them & IT! SIN! To be successful in peace-making and true conflict- resolution we must learn how to take incremental prudent/wise steps away from domination and into cooperation; e.g., learning to take reasonable risks which are actually no more risky than depending upon domination as our means to achieve "security" and "invulnerability" that are not truly real. Security which is true/real entails balanced kinds of vulnerability/intimacy in cooperative relationships. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
