In more recent years I have been confronted by certain ideas: by having someone less intact as a "buddy", by being to somehow foster or adopt or become involved with the welfare of another, using my background particularly in life insurance in the past to raise money to support the person(s), giving up the right to speak objectively for myself in public. In the real world of responsibility for family, people pimp each other to "sell" because they have to. They don't pretend to be more self-sufficient than they really are. I find this particular train of coercion very disturbing.
I tend to resist this coercion, especially to "bond" with someone placed in front of me (as with some substitute teaching scenarios that I recall) because I don't want my own activity to make someone else's lacking "all right". That is how I felt about. it. I could extend my style of thinking to a somewhat conscious intent not to have children if I wasn't physically competitive (and that worries others). And there is dark side to where this could lead if it set an example for others.
And remember, at the end of Imajica, man defeats God, in a super Hong Kong (the First Dominion) that passes for Heaven.
