Some commitments are supportive of evil collusions which encourage people to play games of mutual violence against the truths regarding their personal finitude; idolatrously playing the roles of contentious gods. Commitments to play such deceptive games are not worthy of respect, regardless of the vestments which the commitments wear and the respect which is accorded to them. Commitments to collusive games of mutual self deception are disintegrative commitments and not worthy of respect. We may escape the disintegrative commitments by way of private integrative fantasies through which we may examine the possibilities of new private and communal relationships which are not collusive. There is less risk in examining new possibilities by means of private fantasies than by overt violations of the rules of collusive games of mutual self deception. The articulation of perceptions of such integrative possibilities is a step toward both personal and communal integrity. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
