Such a focus leads to the disintegration of personal relationships and communities --- even when the overt intent is to promote personal and communal integrity. The focus leads to threats of and actual punitive judgments, condemnations, and excommunications; and so to alienation. When prohibitions, prescriptions, proscriptions, rules, laws and commandments flow from focusing upon ourselves, each other and our relationships as things which can be manipulated, controlled and conformed to ideal forms---we are lead into manipulations, coercions, violence and alienative relationships. Our relationships become evil relationships in which people are mislead into thinking of each other as evil people who are beyond redemption, recovery and meaningful dialogue. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
