The paradigm of technocrats, addicts, codependents and colluders excludes the possibility of spiritual acknowledgements of human finitude, dependence, and vulnerability. In the face of actual facts regarding human life the consequence is that to many people dishonesty becomes, an essential technology; one which leads to personal and communal disintegration where such people seek to dominate through their manipulative efforts. Often people object to the details of spiritual affirmations; claiming that the details cannot be proven to be true in any technical way. Their motives in objecting to spiritual affirmations spring from the ways in which most spiritual affirmations (regardless of details) challenge the dishonesty which is essential to the paradigm of technocrats, addicts, codependents and participants in collusive networks of disintegrative support. It is not so much that spiritual affirmations are not literally true which is the threat, but that spiritual affirmations threaten to expose the patterns of personal dishonesty of those who object to the lack of literal truth in spiritual affirmations.
