People who are exclusively concerned with specialized values willfully exclude from their concern those people who are concerned with the complementary values. People who ultimately become concerned with certain specialized values create systems of values which measure dedication in terms of personal willingness to pass judgment upon and excommunicate nonconformists. Their standard of measure of dedication affirms in an evil way the ultimate importance of exclusive values, for the willingness to sacrifice dialogue is the ultimate test of the dedication of evil doers. This is very logical, for the essence of evil is to block dialogue; while the essence of Love is to promote dialogue. Love, rather than good, is the opposite of evil. Good is the reverse side of a coin of which evil is only one face. Good is the other face of evil. The forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil pertains to both sides of the coin which has good and evil as its two faces. The coin is the coin of alienation, sin, and estrangement. The coin is used to buy idolatrous affirmations of exclusive values through the purchase of the possibilities for dialogue to be sacrificed upon the alter of specialized salvation. The opportunities for dialogue are sacrificed to the idolatrous values of those who do evil; i.e. to promote alienation. These values are good values which are backed on the other side of the coin by evil values; i.e., values which promote alienation. Idolaters stigmatize as evil those lovers who refuse to excommunicate people who do not bow down and worship exclusive values which the idolaters know to be good values. Idolaters are blind to the evil they do, and to the Love of the people they excommunicate. Love is God, and God is Love. Love is the power which facilitates open and honest dialogue. The values which apparently characterize the behavior of lovers are not of ultimate importance. Lovers do not describe how lovers behave and then demand that other people conform to those descriptions in order to qualify as lovers. There is no approved life style for lovers. Lovers do not approve life styles, because to do so implies disapproval and excommunication possibilities. That would be evil. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
