So also symptoms of alienation and evil behavior may be regarded as inherently evil; and be hidden or otherwise treated dishonestly. People whose behaviors, life styles, dilemmas and problems are symptoms of their alienation from seats of political power bring unwelcomed news to those who sit in the seats of power. Thus religious, educational, political and business leaders often regard such alien people as unwelcomed messengers and treat the messengers as evil people whose behaviors need to be properly controlled. A more honest and integrative way to respond to such alien messengers is to seek to understand how the unwelcomed messengers may wisely be regarded as pointing to symptoms of alienation of people from the seats of power to recover health and integrity. Their messages may be embarrassing and at the same time it may be essential to respond to the messages with honesty and integrity. The evil does not reside in the messengers or symptoms, and it is dishonest to pretend that the evil resides in the relationships in which the judges participate with self righteous arrogance. Confusion of symptoms of alienation (evil) with evil is not helpful. Yet messengers who bring clarifications which expose such confusion are most likely to be regarded as messengers who are evil because they bring unwelcome news to people sitting in seats of power which is being inappropriately used, abused and/or neglected.
