Such blockers of dialogue usually see the non-conformists whom they excommunicate, banish and reject---as the proper victims of good and justified actions; of good and justified punishments which will cause the non-conformists to repent and return to respectable patterns of proper conformity. If the non- conformists do not repent---the non-conformists are seen as inherently evil; perhaps as victims of original sin or of the seductions of The Devil. Rarely do blockers of dialogue see themselves as the ones who are isolated. They block themselves off from creative insights and dialogue. They blind themselves--- thinking that thereby others are the victims of the punishment of the blindness. They make themselves deaf--- thinking that thereby others are the victims of the punishment of the deafness. Excommunication is excommunication of self from others who are rejected because they do not conform "properly". (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
