Try to set ourselves up as better persons (worthy of preferential acceptance and favors) than other people. 2. Be preoccupied with how we appear to others and impress them---rather than with being true to ourselves and each other. 3. Being preoccupied with dichotomous rules, regulations, commandments and procedures---which are often used by "good people" to try to identify "evil people" who are regarded as worthy of being judged, condemned, excommunicated and alienated. The above often lead to disintegrative rules, prohibitions, taboos, commandments --- which engender disintegrative rebellions against them --- within which which people get together and enjoy the excitement of being together and: 1. Finding others in agreement with them, 2. Working with others cooperatively in rebellion, 3. Overcoming the alienations imposed upon them, 4. Finding new levels of honesty and intimacy, and 5. Discovering new unity and solidarity. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
