The cruelest things in the world, she thought, seeing them clumsy, hot, domineering, hypocritical, eavesdropping, jealous, infinitely cruel and unscrupulous, dressed in a mackintosh coat, on the landing; love and religion.
Самые жестокие две вещи на свете, думала она и так и видела их неуклюжесть, ярость, властность, каверзность, бесстыдство, когда, в макинтоше, они стоят и подслушивают под дверью; любовь и религия.

Unlike MDP, the Vickrey-Groves-Clark mechanism allows for complete revelation of preferences, and the domineering strategy here is to report true value of the public goods consumption.
В отличие от механизма MDP механизм VGC позволяет полностью выявить предпочтения - сообщение истинной полезности от потребления общественного блага в данном механизме является доминирующей стратегией.

I cannot get on without domineering and tyrannising over someone, but ... there is no explaining anything by reasoning and so it is useless to reason.
Без власти и тиранства над кем-нибудь я ведь не могу прожить... Но... но ведь рассуждениями ничего не объяснишь, а следственно, и рассуждать нечего.

Harold’s life-work was to test the edibility of everything with which he came in contact, and he did not like having his life’s work mucked about by a domineering woolly monkey.
Проверять съедобность всего, на что он натыкался, – в этом Гарольд видел смысл своей жизни, и вряд ли ему нравилось, что какая‑то деспотичная шерстистая обезьяна срывает столь важное дело.

He's a churchwarden because he can domineer over the choristers and keep them under his thumb; he's the patron of a school because he likes to feel the teacher is his subordinate and enjoys lording it over him.
Он старостой в церкви потому, что там можно начальствовать над певчими и гнуть их в дугу; он попечитель школы потому, что ему нравится сознавать, что учитель - его подчиненный и что он может разыгрывать перед ним начальство.

But I domineered over him frightfully, and absolutely went so far as insolence more than once, even against my own feelings. This all seemed to happen of itself, inevitably; I couldn't restrain myself.
А деспотировал я его ужасно, и даже въезжал неоднократно в нахальство, и даже против сердца: это всё как-то само собою неудержимо делалось, сам себя не мог удержать.
