The spectrum of disintegration is a continuum. Moving from one place along the spectrum to the adjacent place along the spectrum always seems logical and reasonable---once you have move that far along the spectrum. The crucial first disintegrative step is to start to move along the spectrum of rationalizations of steps along the spectrum. Once one has taken that first step into the disintegrative spectrum it is difficult if not impossible to argue convincingly that the next step is illogical, unreasonable, improper, and/or disintegrative. Taking the first step is the abandonment of honest logic and reason; it is the abandonment of the most fundamental principles of personal and communal integrity. Once we have taken the first step we have abandoned being true to self and other, and so we have abandoned personal integrity and communal integrity. Thus everything falls apart. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
