Desensitization, indifference and/or fatalism. 2. Playing the role of the-helpless-victim. 3. Worship of authorities, heroes, and/or dictators. 4. Worship of domination, coercion & violence. 5. Worship of technologies/technocrats. 6. Worship of a unilateral messiah/savior. 7. Self denigration and false modesty. 8. Giving away our power to make a difference. 9. Rejecting responsibility; giving it to others. 10. Concentrating power in other who dominate us. 11. Generating confusion to hide what threatens us. 12. Forgetfulness & repressions of insights. 13. Pretentiousness, addictions & collusions. 14. Security blankets: arrogance/self-righteousness. 15. Respecting "The Powers That Be" our DOMINATORS. 16. Honoring The Domination Systems' servants. So long as we hide from ourselves and each other how such motivations and "means" make us into mean, insensitive and domineering people --- so long we will be hopeless and helpless victims of our own selfishness in trying to be invulnerable at our unknown victims' expense.
