Heresies claim that a choice must be made between paradoxical truths. Heresies dishonestly claim that paradoxes must be eliminated by forced choices between apparently contradictory truths. Heresies demand that life be simpler than it is, and so do violence to the richness of real living and real people. Extremists often engage in heretical thinking as part of a process of promoting conflicts which facilitate their having paradoxical control over their confused followers. They only appear to have control; but in a paradoxical sense they exert control through their promotion of conflicts over paradoxical truths. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
