The essence of the disintegrative denials is negative in nature, yet they mask themselves in forms which are made to appear to be positive in nature; in the form of "good" laws, rules, regulations, techniques, etc. which are dedicated to apparently "good" ends. The instrumental techniques are justified by their "good" intentions. Yet there is absent a careful dedication to study the actual consequences of the dedication to the use of those instrumental techniques and how they relate to the positive affirmations of love. Love does not deny the affirmations of those who would make integrative use of the instrumental techniques in the service of "good" intentions. The tragic consequences come from the associated denials by "good" people of the integrative affirmations of love. The tragic consequences of "good" people's ways of dealing with situations do not flow from their genuinely integrative affirmations; but from their disintegrative denials. It is difficult to distinguish between the two because obscuring such differences is one of the ways that "evil" occasions disintegrate. When people can not tell the difference between integrative and disintegrative ideals, values and means; then people tend to disintegrate. Confusion does not serve integration. Confusion serves disintegration. Love works to promote clarity of the difference between integrative and disintegrative ideals and values. Love does not view ignorance and confusion with favor, because ignorance and confusion promote disintegration, the opposites of the direction of love's work. Love works to make affirmations which transcend the confusion of evil denials implicit in the evil affirmations of "good" people who have not know love and are confused about what the essence of Love is. It is important to distinguish between the instrumental values and means which may be used by Love to promote integration; and Love itself. The instrumental values and means without the guidance of Love tend to promote disintegration. The instrumental values and means by themselves are evil due to their lack of Love. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
