The addictive aspect of our self, projects blame outward, and so blames others for what we ourselves have done together. There is enough truth in such blaming to justify the action of blaming in the eyes of our addictive self; and so to excuse the addictive self of any responsibility for the resultant consequences, and thus to keep our self from learning through the experience of failures. By projecting blame for our trials and tribulations upon others, we often justify to our addictive selves our tendencies to become violent towards each other because of our frustrations with the consequences of our collusive games of mutual self deception. Our addictive selves cannot honestly express such frustration, for such an honest expression would expose the dishonesty of our collusive games of mutual self deception. Because our addictive selves are not free to be honest, we dishonestly express our frustrations in violence against each other, and so ultimately in violence against our self, which we see in each other. In our confusion we find self justification, and the appearance of salvation; but it is not honest or real. The way out of our self-made-prison is through the acceptance of the truths which honest love offers; yet because we have accepted dishonesty as an essential manipulative technocratic tool which we are unwilling to give up, we find it impossible to accept the truths which honest love offers; and so we do not leave our self-made-prison of technocratic collusions. So we continue to seek technocratic ways to escape from technocratic collusions while turning our back on the insights of Love, Truth, Zen and other manifestations of the power to be whole and healthy with personal and communal integrity.
