Our dilemma is that the abilities which enabled our survival in hostile environments are often turned into perverse tools in our disintegrative collusive games of mutual self deception. We ADAPT to other people's dishonesty and fail to confront the dishonesty of addicts and their codependent supporters. We adjust our desires, wishes, hopes, and aspirations so as to minimize our frustrations and disappointments in the face of disintegative limitations imposed upon us by dishonest people who are addictive, codependent supporters and participants in collusive games of mutual self deception. We ACCOMMODATE to perverse motives, motivations, technologies, and political systems; rather than work creatively to transform and reform them. We APPEAR to be other than we really are to avoid the hard work of being true to ourselves and others in creative confrontations with those who seek to control us in addictive and codependent ways. We fail to see and hear the truth which we fear to deal with openly and forthrightly; and so accommodate to patterns of paradigms which support collusions, addictions and codependency. Our survival instincts need to be modified in ways to promote true personal and communal integrity. We need to recognize, name, and talk about instances in which our survival instincts are perverted and lead to disintegration rather than to survival. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
