The 'control and dominance' found in the military is necessary for peak performance under trying conditions. It is no different than the C&D we expect on the flight deck of a commercial airliner, the bridge of an oil tanker, the operating room of a hospital, and the construction site of a building. Without such C&D, there would be chaos and resulting carnage.
One person, male or female, must be in control. This person is not evil because of her/his control of others. Rather, this person has achieved a respected professional position of leadership, and, most importantly, has accepted the accountability of his/her decisions.
WRT to the military, thank goodness it is male-dominated. I don't think we are willing to accept many females in bodybags. Actually males, per se, are not dominant, they simply outnumber their female colleagues, especially in the combat arms. Those fine ladies who have chosen to serve carry their full load.
None of the above justifies or rationalizes the murders at Ft Bragg. The soldiers involved committed a brutal crime and should be treated like others in our military or civilian system of justice.
