Internal conflicts within people flow from conflicts among the ideals to which individuals are dedicated. Such conflicts lead to personal and communal disintegration---because they undermine personal and communal integrity. Meaningful survival is not possible without integrity. Dedications which undermine integrity can not be ultimately meaningful. Members of a limited community may sincerely engage in games of mutual self deception. They may be open and honest with each other according to the tacit rules of a game of mutual self deception. One of those rules is to be unaware of the game. Thus they can unwittingly be biased in open and honest dialogue. Such bias becomes evident when members of one limited community come into conflict with members of another limited community; e.g., a cross cultural conflict. Open and honest dialogue among members of differing cultures is nearly impossible---if they are participants in games of mutual self deception. The tacit rules of the games of mutual self deception will make unbiased open and honest dialogue exceedingly difficult to realize. When members of two cultures come into conflict--- the integrity of the extended community which includes both cultures will depend upon the dedication of some members to the ideal of promoting both personal and communal integrity via the facilitation of unbiased open and honest dialogue. Ideals which are less central to the integrity of the extended community may properly be assessed in terms of how well they will promote integrity. The ideal of perpetuating the games of mutual self deception will clearly not promote integrity, but those dedicated to that ideal will find it difficult to commit themselves to any integrative ideal. They must become aware of the fact that in the absence of global integrity---all other ideals become futile--- especially if those ideals lead to a nuclear winter which puts an end to the ideals which triggered the nuclear winter.
