129 – Pandemic problems, nature of authority, trust and collaboration, respect and authenticity

From America, various aspects of the pandemic are explored, including how a free and responsible society would effectively deal with it. This contrasts with what we’ve been experiencing in terms of top-down controls and conflicting edicts in the absence of adequate testing. The FDA is a governmental organization that reflects fundamental distrust in biotech scientists, engineers, and businesspersons to do what’s needed to ensure people’s safety. “Authority” based on coercion needs to be challenged and replaced by honest and open collaboration with shared purpose. Again, we need to implement win/win, Teal-stage organizing (https://www.reinventingorganizations.com), trusting people to sense and respond in beneficial, organic, non-hierarchical ways. Psychological questions explore getting needs for fairness, respect, empathy, and emotional understanding and nourishment met, to foster a sense of secure attachment. Coming to integrative terms with our old defenses puts us on the path of healing, which enables more openness, vulnerability, and intimacy.

Question #9. Did your parents deal with you fairly and justly? Did your parents resort to threats in order to control your behavior–either threats of immediate punitive action on their part, or threats in terms of long-range consequences for your life, or threats of supernatural punishments, such as going to hell? Were you praised when you performed well? Or merely criticized when you performed badly? Were your parents willing to admit it when they were wrong? Or was it against their policy to concede that they were wrong?
