    Manipulation

    Hmm. I like this. Thinking sort of off the cuff, maybe I'd break it down into intentional manipulation and inadvertent manipulation. Or perhaps influence is the better term to use for unconscious manipulation as you outlined above. You are 100% correct in saying that we manipulate every aspect of our lives, and it quite honestly has to exist in all of us, or else nothing would get done and people wouldn't be interested in bettering themselves or others. But I disagree that the idea of manipulation is considered horrible. There are many positive aspects of manipulation (which again, I'd prefer to call influence) and I think they outweigh the bad. Maybe the term itself gets a bad rap, but I think you'd be very hard pressed to find someone who didn't honestly think there was a good side to manipulation. Of course, out of the two types, the intentional manipulation gets the most attention, because emotional and verbal manipulation are the types with the most unwelcome outcomes. To expand on the inadvertent manipulation, I think this is an unconscious effort and therefore shouldn't be maligned. Unless intentional, most of our manipulation to others is likely out of a sense of caution, protection, or love. When raising children, you could nicely characterize all your rules and lessons as a form of manipulation. But they are there to produce a better adult in the future. You basically said as such in your post, I'm just agreeing with it. To answer your final question, I find manipulation to be far more right than wrong. It's the driving force that creates a better future by influencing your lot in life today. What crosses the line is the nit-picky and intentional manipulation where you're after someone for your own personal gain over the gain of society or others. Especially when that manipulation necessitates putting down others, that's when it crosses the line.

    Global Epidemic and Your Growing Body

    I wear a mask to work (healthcare setting, very sterile) and when I walk into stores. But if I'm going on a run or walking around town I do not wear one.
