Such people view their efforts are righteous because to them the behaviors which they seek to encourage and require are clearly reasonable, prudent and proper---and the behaviors which they seek to discourage and prevent are clearly unreasonable, imprudent and improper. For such people it is often exceedingly difficult to recognize that no matter how reasonable, prudent and proper are the behaviors which they seek to encourage and require; and no matter how unreasonable, imprudent and improper are the behaviors which they seek to discourage and prevent---their MANNER OF APPROACH is usually alienative, dysfunctional, ineffective, and disintegrative because it engenders much dishonesty, deception, imbalance, coercion, anger, resentment and violence. Often such people regard their cause as so obviously righteous, that they cannot see how ineffective their MANNER OF APPROACH is, and so they can justify their MANNER OF APPROACH and their particular goals only in idolatrous ways---as foci of ultimate concern and worship. People who do not worship their gods are obviously evil degenerates with whom one should not be in open and honest dialogue. Thus they protect themselves against the painful truths which they do not want to face. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
