One of the several reasons why I’m so strict about the nonviolence solutions is that there are people who, when they are drugging people, are truly thinking that they are, for example, ‘good doers’ or secretly medicating ‘sick people’.
Often they are instructed not to tell to the ‘sick people’ or their lawyers about the sickness or medication. The reason given for the silence is the sick people’s sickness that should be hidden from the sick people because of their sickness. Other given reason is often the good doers goodness for the world and the ideology.
I hope people would be very cautious if they start to think themselves as good doers or that they would be part of happiness system or ‘fixing others’ system. That kind of ideas should always awake alarms. Even when people’s own intentions would be very sincere or innocence.
Instead of “good” or “bad” I would ask people to focus to the amount of control (or control-less) and hierarchy inside their doings. And what they actually do as actions, and does it in the end fit to the idea what do they want to increase in the world and done also to themselves.
I would be especially cautious with physical control in any system, specially when it is wrapped with all the beautiful ideas and goodness. It’s not an accident that I’m repeatingly ending up to be drugged – even people have many times realised that drugging me has been based on a scam and wrong decisions. Not everyone in this game is a ‘good guy’.
Let’s say this more directly: Not just that I’m repeatingly ending to be drugged but that people are repeatingly ending up to drug the others as a part of their solution for their system. Behind that there are games and hierarchy which I personally wouldn’t support in any possible situation.
When people compromise the ‘middle way’ solution to be in the middle of the other people’s squares, it’s not truly a middle way. Thinking, where people would put the middle way when the solution would be concretely in their own personal square, makes easier to evaluate the decisions and the causes – which kind of rules people are creating for the world where they are living in.
For myself is easier to think compromises and the causes by thinking what is the median I’m causing to the others with the compromises I do. Then thinking myself below the median, or even better, trading myself below the median and then trying to move the median itself with my own actions.
If and when I’m ready to see the true median and below. Sometimes is too easy to trick ownself to stay more comfortable.
1. Physical (also neurophysical) self-determination for everyone used by the ideology: concrete solution.
2. A clear and simple procedure and tools to deny and report, for people asked to drug people.
3. Forbid drugging
