People at one extreme deal honestly with wide continuous spectrums of gracious possibilities. At another extreme people deal only with mutually exclusive-dichotomous either/or alternatives within contentious relationships. 1. How can we help healthy people avoid becoming dysfunctionally domineering; i.e., help them avoid becoming tragic leaders who trigger personal and communal patterns of disintegration? 2. How can we help domineering people make the transition back toward being involved in healthy-humane relationships --- which promote and facilitate both personal and communal integrations and integrities? What kinds of kind-efforts may "move"; i.e., motivate, domineering people to relax and let go of their fears and extremist tendencies? What will help domineering people among us to relax and feel less need to be defensive; to less often feel the need to justify themselves? How can domineering/dishonest people be helped to let go of contentiousness and dishonesty --- as common means for presumably achieving invulnerability and/or security? By what role-modeling, demonstrations, examples, communal-contexts, virtues and cooperative efforts --- can contentiousness be moderated? Can it be a gradual and gentle process from the point of view of domineering and/or insecure people? (c) 2005 by Paul A.
