Sometimes it is good to be alone. It is evil to be forced to be alone. Alienation is being forced to be alone through rejection, banishment, excommunication, etc. Alienation can be cured by acceptance by people with power who are different than you are. To be accepted by people without power, or who share your alienation does not cure the alienation. Alienated people often create their own isolated realities by acting as if their visions, dreams, fantasies, etc. are really real. Sometimes their realizations are creative and substantial. Other time their realizations fly in the face of integrity and are the creations of a game of mutual self deception, a collusion. The difference between creative realizations and collusions can not be told from within a collusion; i.e., by alienated people. It can not be told by people who are trapped within a competing collusion. The assessment can be made only by those people with the power to transcend all collusions through reconciliation, grace, love, forgiveness, dialogue, vulnerability and intimacy. Ignorance is not one of the means to salvation. Being deaf, blind, and dumb does not help one to be saved. Whatever blocks open and honest dialogue promotes ignorance and forces people to be more alone, alienated, estranged; not by choice. When so alone people tend to create their own realities, realities which may not be in concert with the realities of varieties of different people. Such alienation leads to misunderstanding, frustration, conflict, and violence. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
