Can any good come from submissive people conforming in ways that domineering, coercive and violent people demand? Can any good come from submissive people copying the attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, and domineering TECHnologies which coercive and violent people TEaCH as narrow minded TECHnocrats/TEaCHnocrats --- through their own coercive/violent words and deeds? Can we as peacemakers facilitate or promote personal or communal integrities by imitating the ways in which arrogant, self-righteous, domineering and/or coercive and violent people --- try to make us be "good" like they are "good"? Can anyone as a peace-MAKER MAKE others be "good" through domination --- in the absence of willing cooperation which is graciously elicited from common people to whom God as Love has given his gracious freedom to MAKE their own gracious choices --- to promote both personal and communal integrities of diverse KINDs --- through KIND and creative Acts of Love? Can anyone promote mutual understanding, cooperation, creativity, honest-dialogue or integrity of any KIND --- through the use of any means and technologies which are: MEAN, MEANingless, unilateral, arbitrary, capricious, prejudiced, narrow, unbalanced, extreme and/or prone to promote terror and resentment of any KIND? Can any teachings, doctrines, or rituals make sense in ways which will be truly accepted by common people --- if those teachings, doctrines, and rituals do NOT demonstrate common forms of: coherence, integrity, honesty, civility, hospitality, kindness, patience, grace, balance, mutuality, cooperation, reverence and integrity? Can domineering experts unilaterally supply us with any meaningful forms of integrity, health, well-being, meaning, significance, success, pleasure, joy or fulfillment? The above are a few things and questions for common people to think about --- for their own good and for the good of each other. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
