It is often more constructive to clarify the ideals and values which lead to personal and communal integrity, in contrast to the ideals and values which lead to personal and communal disintegration. It is the latter ideals and values which often play a role in giving evil behavior an appearance of respectability because people look at the articulated ideals and values, rather than upon the consequences of how they are affirmed. There are many conflicts involving people who are committed to eliminating evil behavior through coercion. So long as there is confusion about the difference between ideals and values which lead people to behave in disintegrative ways, and other ideals and values which lead people to play integrative roles of reconciliation; so long will there be respect accorded to people who try to eliminate evil behavior through coercion. People who are trapped in the prison of alienative paradigms do not have the perspective to see what is happening when creative people engage in the work of clarifying the difference between integrative and disintegrative systems of values and ideals. Once the difference has been clarified and mutually understood in open and honest dialogue, then the battle is well on its way to being over. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
