The possibility that there are systemic blockages to honesty, integration and coherence is repressed by the addictive behaviors of the collusive society. The above possibility should regularly be considered to prevent the possibility from being realized. The healthy community should feel no threat from the open and honest consideration of the possibility that there might be in the community traces of addictive, collusive and codependent behavior. If the suggestion that there may be such traces in a community elicits defensive maneuvers, then thoughtful people should take seriously the notion that blockages are in fact operative in significant ways. Technocratic communities develop all kinds of sophisticated technologies in defense of the dishonest games of mutual self deception which are central to their addictive organizations and institutions. Technocratic communities will be systematic in their blockages of insights into the nature of the dishonesties of the society. People who seek to promote systemic recovery from systemic addiction and systemic codependence need to promote systemic understanding of the dynamics of systemic addiction. It is not enough to label some people evil, and other people as good. Such labeling is itself a characteristic of addictive and codependent behavior. What is needed is to understand the dynamics of alienation, estrangement, reduction of self-esteem, discouragement, depression, etc. We need to learn from those who have made major contributions to the transcendence of collusive and addictive patterns of behavior. Not always, but often, the creative insights come to magical mystical children who have not been fully introduced to the rules of their society's collusive games of mutual self deception. Such mystical children find ways to crack the cosmic egg of the collusive community, in ways which undermine the pretensions of the sophisticated adults. Such mystical children need encouragement, they need help to have the courage to ask their transcendent questions. So that they may have the courage, the healthy community should systemically given them encouragement to ask the their embarrassing questions in their simple ways. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
