Integrity is undermined by disintegrative diseases which are contagious. Such medical diseases have long been recognized, analyzed and treated. No so well recognized, analyzed or treated are disintegrative diseases in the religious, political, economic, social, intellectual, psychological, and related domains of human life. Disintegrative diseases in such areas are often contagious; i.e., the presence of disintegration in one part of a community will often lead by a chain of cause- and-effect events to disintegration in other parts of the community, and so to the disintegration of the community as both it and its members lose integrity. Sometimes a disintegrative disease is present in the way in which individuals and communities try to prevent the disintegration of their community. Efforts to inhibit disintegration often inhibit communication instead, and so undermine the integrity of the community as communications lose their spontaneity and openness. Systematic efforts to inhibit disintegration often lead to systematic patterns of human behavior which do not fit well with more deeply rooted behavior patterns which promoted human survival. Such systematic efforts become a cancerous disease when they grow beyond the bounds of integrative efforts, and lead a parasitic life of their own, sapping the energy of the community which sustains them. Love works to recognize disintegrative diseases, clearly identify their nature and effects, and then assess ways of responding to them in ways which do NOT further undermine the integrity of the persons and individuals within the suffering community. DISINTEGRATIVE "curative" efforts are the essence of tragedy. Sincere well intentioned efforts to do what is believed to be "right" often lead to horrible consequences. What is ultimately "right" leads instead to greater personal and communal integrity. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
