Manipulation Is Bad

“Manipulating others is bad.
(Discuss if you like.)”

“How is it a paradox?”

“The statement “manipulation is bad” is disapproving of manipulation, yet it itself is making a statement to persuade thought which is manipulation.”

The paradox is lovely. I think manipulation happens all the time, on various different levels (similar to conflict or power). And I think it is wicked, sometimes even cruel, to consciously use one’s awareness of it for one’s own benefit. Manipulation is bad. I agree with that statement. And I believe a dark adept should manipulate mindfully.
