June 2th 2020 : Donald Trump threatens to send the army to « dominate the streets ».
Reaction of the demonstrators: « He wants to dominate us but he will never be able to dominate us ».
The project consisting in dominating someone (take power on / pressure over) brings about costs, falls into traps, leads to deadlock. The C-R-I-T-E-R-E method teaches the right attitude that articulates the plans to 1) understand the people on the street (the power to be with them) and 2) guarantee justice (the power to respect the common good).
Leaving the false dilemma between hawks and doves. Eliminating all gestures, all words like « power on / under the other » and deploy the powers « for / to » and « with ».

The C-R-I-T-E-R-E method, : AND autority AND comprehension without any autoritarism or passivity.
