Pride in owning and managing what are regarded as superior: theologies, doctrines, scriptures, rituals, liturgies, moralities, life styles, churches, polities; and therefore pride in being superior people who are more certainly saved from hell and damnation---than are those other evil people who shall not be named or known intimately. 2. Exclusivity towards those children of God who are not as good as we are, and who are therefore evil in our eyes; to be avoided, or at most preached at. 3. Preoccupations with issues of control over different people's beliefs, thoughts, attitudes, expressions, feelings, experiences, and life styles. 4. Preoccupations with abstractions such as theologies, doctrines, moral codes, ethical principles, rules and regulations---to the exclusion of open and honest talking, conversations, dialogue and listening relate intimately to our own personal experiences, feelings, doubts, attitudes, beliefs, convictions, hopes, aspirations, desires, fears and failures---which do not conform to the requirements of the abstractions which focus little upon the personal and communal disintegration which they often promote. Addictive organizations as corporate entities as well as addictive individual people need to learn to understand and talk about the dynamics of addictions, codependence and collusive games of mutual self deception. No collection of unrelated individual recovery programs can succeed in the face of addictive organizations which corporately refuse to engage in any kind of corporate program designed to promote recovery of corporate honesty integrity, health, meaning, significance, and over-all well being for all concerned individuals and organizations.
