"A dandelion is growing in your garden. If it spreads, it could choke
out your newly planted carrots and tomatoes. Cut off its head and
leaves, it will quickly grow back. Pull at it and break its root part
way and it will also grow back. The only way to get rid of the dandelion
is to pull all parts of the plant from the ground and remove it. That’s
what getting at the root of the problem means. If you don’t dig deeply
enough, you won’t actually rid yourself of some difficulty you are facing."
The desire to dominate is very human, but it's not the only possibility.
