Evil-people are symptoms/messengers that reveal the presence of evil-relationships which are promoted and maintained by "The Domination System". Eliminating the diverse symptoms/messengers of "The Domination System" will make it harder to know how to diagnose the evil- disease which occasions the symptoms and messengers which tell of the works/fruits of "The Domination System". We need to give open and honest attention to the diverse symptoms and messengers; else we surrender to "The Domination System" in adopting its dishonest/coercive ways. We need to note, acknowledge and build upon whatever traces of integrity and health that we can discern in evil-people and their evil-relationships --- so as to diagnose the symptoms and discern the meanings of the messages which they present to us. If we regard any people as beings who are essentially evil; rather than as presenting symptoms/messages that reveal the presence of evil-relationships --- we thereby blind ourselves to what they might otherwise reveal to us as God's messages about the nature of good-and-evil --- and about wherein good-and-evil reside; i.e., within in our relationships. Then we cannot cooperate so as to improve our relationships through the integration of complementary-parts which we have seen only as conflicted-parts. We need to work on resolving our enduring conflicts; rather than work on achieving control/dominance through the knowledge of who is good and who is evil --- as acquired through the eating of many technocratic apples from the forbidden tree in the heart of God's holy garden. (On the opening of the second movement of Beethoven's "Emperor" Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major.) Only as domineering people are freed to discern a comforting vision of a world in which there is no need for anyone to be dominant and in control --- can they allow such a comforting vision to be fulfilled in others and/or in themselves and their relationships.
