    If any religious person considers God to be a caring shepherd, then Dominion means caring stewardship.  (Consider "Domini" as Latin for God, as in Anno Domini).

    Reflexively, if someone thinks that "Dominion" means to uncaringly use up and destroy anything you can control, then that person apparently doesn't think much of their God.

      the connotations that come to mind are of order and structure, not chaos and destruction. A dominion in the sense of a country ruled by a monarch, for example.

      Kings and queens that actively destroy the countries that they rule usually don't last very long, and suffer pretty nasty ends.
