To control other people's behaviors? 2. To control other people's behaviors --- when they are not behaving properly? 3. To judge and announce whether or not other people are behaving properly? 4. To observe and describe the consequences of how other people behave --- so all can learn from our wisdom? 5. To share with other people our wisdom? 6. To make/coerce other people to be like us? 7. To identify good-people and evil-people --- and protect the good-people from the evil-people? 8. To discern what-is-true-for-us and to-be-true to- ourselves and to-each-other with: reverence, grace, patience, mercy and civility? 9. To unilaterally do for others --- what we know they need to have done; but cannot do for themselves? 10. Other duties or other conceptions of the scope and limits of our responsibilities? Domineering people feel/believe that they have a duty and/or right to control and/or dominate others; and that others have no duty/right to control or dominate them. Lovers feel/believe that they have NO duty or right to dominate anybody; and that nobody else has any duty or right to control or dominate true lovers. Lovers know that their duties and rights are limited. Lovers know that other people have different duties which are complementary to the duties of lovers. Lovers know that different people may not have the same duties as those that they themselves have. Domineering people rarely acknowledge that their own duties and rights are limited --- limited to the extent that lovers have different LEGITIMATE duties and rights --- including some LEGITIMATE duties and rights which domineering people do NOT: know about, understand, respect, reverence and/or acknowledge. "The Domination System" is preoccupied with issues of power; i.e., into whose hands should power be concentrated and which kinds of people should be deprived of the power to be influential in any way. The issues have to do with inclusion-within and exclusion-from centers of: power, influence, control and dominance. Domineering people's duties are defined "externally" by "The Domination System" which cannot be localized in any particular: time, place, group, scriptures, writings, interpretations, etc. "The System" is essentially invisible --- so that it cannot be held accountable by any transcendent: power, insights, perceptions, discernments, experiences, or common people. Lovers' duties are defined in-common by-lovers in- Love through balanced-dialogue which is: open, transparent, reverent, gracious, patient, merciful, civil and responsive --- with no one having the right/duty/privilege to be in control or dominant; and all persons are called to be in-service with each other in cooperative works which benefit all neighbors around.
