The maintenance of taboos, collusions and addictions require dishonest behavior; for they entail games of mutual self deception. It is dangerous to play such games in the support of any "good cause" because the example given thereby sets the stage for playing like games of mutual self deception for other causes which may not be so "good". The use of games of mutual self deception in the service of a "good" cause leads to the disintegration of people and then communities. Excommunication, shunning, estrangement, alienation, etc. are essentially disintegrative tools, and any respect shown for the use of such tools contributes to personal and communal disintegration; i.e., to evil processes. Personal communal disintegration are the essence of evil processes. Thus, the breakdown of communication is characteristic of evil processes. The use of tools which entail the breaking down of communication is an evil process, and is not worthy of respect even though the intended purpose is "good". "Good" intentions can not make disintegrative processes worthy of respect. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
