They expect to be courted and expect to court others. The focus of their lives is courtship. They trade favors like merchants trade goods. They remember favors granted, and expect that their favors will be remembered. They assess others in terms of their potential for courtship relationships. People who are not disposed to courtship are not respected. One chooses as friends and acquaintances only those disposes to exchange personal favors. People who insist upon the rule of law are very troublesome. They just will not play by the rules of courtship. They have no manners. They will not remember and honor a personal debt incurred by accepting a favor in the past. They will not promise to pay for a current favor with a future favor in return---making excuses with words about laws that must not be broken. Who are they to talk about laws, they have no honer. It is they who will not make and keep honorable promises about the exchange of favors. Such people are not trustworthy or reliable. It is best not to try to do business with them. You can never be sure what they will do. Such sentiments are characteristic of manipulative people who have chosen between the manipulative rule of persons, and the manipulative rule of law---because they are not familiar with the non-manipulative love of real persons who transcend loyalty to persons and law. They do not court favors as commodities for trade, but give of themselves generously in dialogue without counting the cost or gain. They court personal relationships unbounded by quantitative considerations. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
