When we are ignorant of other people and misunderstand them, we are prone to think less of them than we think of ourselves. In our ignorance and misunderstanding we may fear them, be defensive towards them, and so respond to them as objects to be manipulated, deceived, and controlled. This leads to violence and to greater levels of ignorance, misunderstanding and objectivity. Treating people as if they are only impersonal objects generates alienation, misunderstanding, defensiveness and ignorance. These characteristics are inter-related in many ways and tend to engender each other. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
