Money may play a central role in the blockage of communication when it is desired more than is listening and dialogue. Technology may play a central role in the blockage of communication when compulsive concerns for techniques block communication; e.g., between a mother and her newborn infant through premature cutting of the umbilical cord, separation of the infant to a nursery, the use of artificial milk formulas, nursing care of the infant by professionals, etc. Each such instance is the affirmation of professional technology over against instinctive mothering and dialogue between mother and infant. Technology may be valued more than dialogue or professional advantage may be valued more than dialogue. The professional and technocratic biases of physicians and nurses often work to block communication between mother and infant---by prematurely cutting the flow of life giving blood; blocking the exchange of physical affection, visual contact, sounds, body movements, and odors; preventing the flow of milk from mother to infant, and in general inhibiting the bonding of mother and infant. Too often physicians and nurses have acted authoritatively to promote the bonding of infants to inanimate objects such as rubber nipples, plastic bottles, plastic cribs, and synthetic fiber blankets---rather than permitting them to become bonded to their personal mother. Infants that are bonded to non-personal objects tend to grow up to be ultimately concerned about (worship, idolize, covet) physical objects and processes, rather than to be loved, listened to, and be in dialogue with persons. Their concerns lead them to collect and/or consume physical objects and natural resources. They seek to solve by objective technologies the personal dilemmas which originate in their objective bonding. Their objectivity blocks personal communication and the perception of the origins of their personal problems. Evils are occasioned and fed by blocked communication, by the inhibition of mutual awareness and mutual understanding of people by people. Non-personal efforts to eliminate evils act to block personal communication, and occasion additional alienation and so occasion additional evil acts. Objectively bonded people attempt to objectify evil so they can locate and control it. Thereby they augment evil. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
