Such addictive preparations lead to an increase in the overall damage done to all participants; leading to greater confusion, entropy, disintegration, resentment, revenge, alienation, misunderstanding, etc. through prolonged conflict. Gathering together a large amount of concentrated energy in preparation for battle is bound to maximize disintegrative consequences, whether the energy is literal energy in the physicists' physical sense; or whether it is energy in a more psychological, political, religious, familial, or spiritual sense. The explosive release of concentrated energy is more likely to be destructive to all participants in the release, than it is likely to be constructive. To minimize destruction we need to disengage, disperse, separate, detach those energetic elements, constituents, participants which/who are most likely to behave in explosive ways in a catastrophe. Conflict resolution does not occur through the concentration of fire power and the means of destruction; even though addictive personalities are likely to lead in that direction in preparation for what they regard as a holy conflict. Conflict resolution occurs slowly, carefully, thoughtfully, prayerfully, in serenity and meditation; not through battles. Battles are more destructive than they are holy; destructive in ways which lead to increased disorder, chaos, confusion, resentment, entropy, disintegration, revenge, alienation, misunderstanding, etc. Addictive personalities do not lead us out of battles and into conflict resolution; they do the reverse---they lead us out of conflict resolution and into battles which are evil because they generate alienation. To promote both personal and communal integrity we need to recognize, respect and choose as our leaders those people who wisely seek to minimize the conflict-full effects of addictive tendencies; and move with wisdom in the direction of GETTING all participants TOGETHER in open and honest dialogue TO create conflict resolutions to which all participants can say YES. Leaders Roger Fisher, William Ury and Scott Brown have articulated the ways of GETTING TOGETHER and GETTING TO YES in concise little books. They need to be read together with an understanding of how they relate to recovery from collusive addictions and codependent support networks. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
