Rogerian Psychotherapy.

Dean Gotcher

   When you establish right and wrong, i.e., facts and truth upon your "feelings" (opinion) of the 'moment,' you become a servant of, i.e., a slave to those who make a living seducing, deceiving, and manipulating men for their own pleasure, i.e., for their own gain. By simply 'changing' the classroom (workplace, decision or policy making) environment away from the preaching, teaching, and discussing (at the parent's, teacher's, bosses,' etc., discretion) of commands, rules, facts, and truth toward the dialoguing of opinions, i.e.., to your and others "feelings" of the 'moment' (to a consensus, i.e., for the sake of unity, i.e., in order to build relationship, i.e., community [common-unity]) you automatically become a "sitting duck" for seduction, deception, and manipulation, with the facilitator of 'change' turning you into "human resource" (like "natural resource") to be used for his own personal pleasure and gain (What is on the menu? You. Anyone like duck?).
  As the "great" facilitator of 'change,' i.e., psychotherapist, i.e., seducer, deceiver, manipulator Carl Rogers stated it: "We know how to change the opinions of an individual in a selected direction, without his ever becoming aware of the stimuli which changed his opinion." "We know how to influence the ... behavior of individuals by setting up conditions which provide satisfaction for needs of which they are unconscious, but which we have been able to determine." "If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors [our potential ability to influence or control the behavior of groups] will follow." "We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." "'Now that we know how positive reinforcement works [dialoguing opinions to a consensus, i.e., dialoguing our feelings (our carnal desires of the 'moment') to a feeling of oneness ('discovering' through dialogue the common carnal desires that we can all agree on, thereby affirming ourselves, and working together, as one, in fulfilling them, we establish our carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., ourselves over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., his/His restraints)], and why negative doesn't' [the father's/Father's authority to 1) give us commands and rules which go counter to and therefore restrain our carnal desires of the 'moment,' 2) reward us or bless us when we do what is right and obey, 3) chasten us when we do wrong and disobey, and 4) cast out those who disrespect i.e. who question and/or challenge his/His authority, i.e., who reject his/His restraints]... 'we can be more deliberate and hence more successful in our cultural design. We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled [the manipulated] though they are following a code much more scrupulously [more government regulations and oversight (sight based management)] than was ever the case under the old system, nevertheless feel free. They are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do. That's the source of the tremendous power of positive reinforcement—there's no restrain and no revolt. By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior—the motives, the desires, the wishes. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy) Emphasis in original.

By removing (negating) the father's/Father's authority, i.e., by being "positive" and not "negative" in the "consensus" meeting, all participants become subject so the seduction, deception, and manipulating of the facilitator of 'change,' i.e., become "human resource" (like "natural resource") to be used (manipulated) by him for his own pleasure and gain—doing so (of course) in the name of "the people," i.e., to build community.  It is how communism, i.e., common-ism works (a word we never hear of these days). Merging common-ism with capitalism, i.e., "building relationships upon self interest" does not change a thing. It only makes the process of 'change' more deceptive to see. Resulting in all participants being 'liberated' to think and do unrighteous and abominable things without having a "guilty conscience" for their deceitful and wicked ways.
