Calling for "higher" standards --- by which they mean standards which are more detailed, cover more situations, are harder to meet, entail more controls over people and relationships, and demand higher levels of "purity" in attitudes, assumptions, thoughts, perceptions, desires, decisions, and behaviors. 2. Claiming that people who affirm complementary standards --- have no standards; and so merit no respect, honor or trust. 3. Calling for more strict enforcement of what they regard as existing standards --- which they interpret in terms of their own exclusive attitudes, assumptions, thoughts, perceptions, desires, decision and life styles. 4. Calling for higher levels of exclusivity in qualification standards for election to governing bodies of the institutions, political parties, churches and other organizations --- which they seek to dominate because they believe that they have a right and/or duty to do so. Domineering people fail to recognize and acknowledge that other people affirm, and in coherent ways live by, standards which transcend domineering thoughts and ways. These transcendent standards deal with reflexive realities which go beyond objective appearances; for example: 1. Qualities of human relationships --- rather than with ways in which individual humans must conform to prescribed and proscribed patterns of thought, belief, reasoning, desires, perceptions, fears, hopes, aspirations and public behavior. 2. Matters of the heart --- rather than with matters of public appearances. 3. Facilitation and promoting --- honesty, dialogue, listening, cooperation, reconciliation, peacemaking, intimacy, health, healing, sharing, mutuality, balance, personal integrity, and communal integrity. 4. Recognizing, naming, describing, understanding, talking-about, transcending and subverting: addictions, codependent relationships, collusions, dominations, alienations, estrangements, misunderstandings, ignorance, prejudices, coercions, violence, wars, and disintegration. Domineering people refuse to acknowledge the merit of such reflexive standards --- because honoring them would lead to the walls of their "Domination System" fortress to come tumbling down when lovers would com and play their harps as they go around/about the "Domination System" both visibly and invisibly. It is a terrifying thought that such a thing might come to pass! Pray that it does and act as if it is coming to pass. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
