Creative people will often be seen as non- conformists who are evil and worthy of rejection. 2. Rebellious people will rebel in non-conformist ways---both before and after any efforts are made to get them to conform. 3. People who are preoccupied with issues of control will engage in abusive efforts to get others to conform--- and so engender much misunderstanding and alienation. 4. People who are preoccupied with being accepted and liked will try to conform and please abusive people who want to be in control---and so they will help to generate an abusive community full of violence and other disintegrative behaviors. 5. Idealistic people will always be upping the standards for good behavior and try to get perfect conformity to unrealistic standards. 6. Each group will try to distinguish itself by demanding conformity of its members to high standards of behavior which clearly differentiate the group from "less desirable others." 7. Disintegrative, rather than integrative, behaviors will be encouraged. Regarding non-conformity as somehow central to the nature of evil leads to personal and communal disintegration.
