I think Judy is right. Those of us who take out our anger on ourselves through self injury or other means find safety in civility. But I also think it means a bit more than that.

It also means, to me, having a reasonable expectation that the same results will come from the same actions (which is why some of Dr. Bob's admin actions stir up so much controversy - they sometimes differ from prior expectation), and trust in the person in charge. Both trust that Dr. Bob is here, and trust that he will act fairly. Now I always trust Dr. Bob will act fairly, in his eyes. But I sometimes feel unsafe if an admin action is not what I would expect from prior experience or when I feel that Dr. Bob isn't minding the store. (Even though I rationally realize he can't be here all the time.)
