For example, a "Big-Guy" might dress up in the uniform of a Police-Officer, publicly carry a forged badge and ID, and arrest an isolated vulnerable person on false charges. Such action is a very serious secular crime! In the realms of substantial religious institutions there have been many occasions of religious leaders serving in one of their religion's offices "with authority" and presuming to Know-And-Enforce God's-Will; perhaps even with the enthusiastic support of a gang of their own enthusiastic supporters. Might such actions have been criminal acts? What are the proper humane responses to such criminal acts? How is Human-Alienation to be MITIGATED in the face of such criminal actions on the part of mere mortals? Should PROPER-RESPONSES entail the use of MORE-VIOLENCE? Any Truly-Proper-Reconciling-Response will entail many Integrative-Combinations of Mutually-Complementary: 1. Suggestions about dealing Openly-And Honestly with Imbalances-of-Power-and-Wealth --- in the presence of True-Lovers seeking to Facilitate-Healthy-Forms of: neighborly-love, friendships, intimacies, romances and sexual-relationships. 2. Graciously-Speaking-of-Truths-to-Traditional-Powers. 3. Ways of Mitigating: Coercion, Domination, Violence, and other forms of Alienative-Behaviors. The closer that Domineering-People intuit that True-Lovers are To-Letting-Go of their own Domineering-Tendencies --- the more Fearful-and-Desperate the Domineering-People become in their efforts to Protect-The-Powers-That-Be and The-Domination-Systems that Have-Them, the Domineering- People, In-Prisons that are made invisible by their Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception. Who clings to such prisons? Be-Together in the Many-Gracious ways of Shalom. (c) 2007 by Paul A.
