The kinds of foci upon which domineering people get us to NARROWLY-FOCUS our attention --- in COMPULSIVE ways which are tragically misleading; e.g.: a. Denigrating people whom we do not know or barely know anything about --- to get us to be willing to attack, destroy, and/or kill them in ritualistic violence as in terrorists' actions and wars that use weapons of mass destruction. b. Accentuating differences between us and people whom the domineering people have labelled as "enemies". c. Repressing open and honest communications between us and people whom the domineering people have labelled as "enemies". d. Attempting to dominate/control realities and processes which are utterly beyond anybody's ability to dominate or control. 2. The kinds of FOCI-AWAY-FROM-WHICH domineering people shift our attention --- in DISTRACTIVE-MOVES which are tragically misleading; e.g. away from essential foci such as: a. Reverence towards the essential foundations for personal and communal integrities of diverse kinds --- foundations that are indispensable for long-term humane: survival, health, wisdom, prudence, civility, hope, meaning, civilization, etc. b. Reverence towards diverse life-forms which play essential roles in the ecosystems within which humans are very late arriving actors. c. Acknowledging the immensity, complexity and full scope in time and space of the whole cosmos --- within which Planet-Earth and all human civilizations have played, and can play, only tiny bit parts. d. Acknowledging human limits and the importance of humility, cooperation, hos- pitality and balance in dealing with those limits and the limitations they place upon all humans. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
