We are UNLIKELY to do ALL of the above when we are distracted from doing ALL of the above by efforts to purify our doing just ONE of the above --- better than do others. Any prideful specialization in our trying to do just one of the above ---- in a way which is better than the way in which others try do just that one of the above --- is a specialization which will work to undermine our being able to to do ANY ONE of the above. Fragmentive efforts lead to personal and communal fragmentation --- as the Apostle Paul wrote in I Corinthians Chapters 12 AND 13. Extremists are not persons of integrity and they do not promote integrative communities --- because their efforts are fragmentive in nature; specializing in exclusive ways --- rather than in integrative ways.
