Utilitarianism is often associated with attempts to concentrate power; and so with the corruption of concentrated power under the leadership of domineering people in the service of the Domination Systems of the provincial: Gang Lords, Dictators, Kings, or whoever else is "in charge". Servants-of-Love seek to transcend the perspectives of servants-of-utilitarianism --- and the risks inherent in serving utilitarianism; e.g., in dishonesty, collusions, addictions, codependence, domination, etc. Servants-of-Love are bound to be criticized for lacking any systematic set of: laws, commandments, rules, prescriptions, proscriptions, goals, plans, regulators, managers, controllers, or other utilitarian-means to maintain law-and-order in coherent ways. There are no guarantees granted by Love to serve as the assurance of reliable and predictable real: security, invulnerability, safety, stability, knowledge, certainty, self-confidence, self-assurance, self-esteem. Love does not help us to be among the few best people in town; so why be non-utilitarian servants-of-Love which fails to control those inferior to us, who are superior people. Domineering people find that it is to their special interests' advantage to focus on utilitarian ways of focusing people's attention upon various: goals, achievements, purposes, plans --- which can be most readily manipulated, managed, control, guided, directed, diverted, perverted, seduced; more than can the guidings of Holy Spirit in keeping with Love's Will. Gods's Will is that we love each other. Shalom. Peace One 1 (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
