Domineering-people can more successfully defeat neophyte-domineering-people than they can defeat true- lovers who are not yet mature-lovers. Neophyte- domineering-people are not likely to be fully committed to the attitudes and assumptions of long-experienced- domineering-people; and so fail in contests over who will be dominant, and if necessary who will destroy their enemies. Once people have bought-into the assumption that all important questions call for yes or no answers; the people will be willing to let go of all but the most extreme ends of the spectrum of possibilities for resolving conflicts; i.e., they will choose between extreme domination and extreme submission. Excluded from consideration will be all of the following possibilities; because they are not at the extreme ends of the spectrum of possibilities. All of the following possibilities are best fulfilled well in advance of the actual emergence of conflicts between people. Engaging in these activities will lay the foundations for non- violent resolution of conflicts and so for the avoidance of the terrifying and terrible costs of war. It will be prudent, wise and cost-effective to teach many children and young people in each community: 1. The languages, cultures, political traditions, sciences and patterns of religious expression of diverse people with whom they are likely to interact in the future. 2. The skills needed by diplomats and negotiators --- so that as adults they will be able to help frame and resolve questions to the mutual satisfaction of those people who find themselves involved in conflict. 3. How to recognize and deal with extremism which flows from the more common forms of mental and physiological diseases and dis-ease; e.g., forms of addiction, codependence, narcissism, domination, paranoia, dichotomous-thinking, etc. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
