Will emphasize ways in which different and often apparently contradictory ideals, values and perspectives are mutually complementary in paradoxical ways. 2. Will focus upon: balance, mutuality, cooperation, understanding, listening, sharing-experiences, honesty, dialogue and security --- enjoyed as the freedom to be safely vulnerable. 3. Will not be vulnerable to subversion or diversion by fragmentive extremists. 4. Will not be motivated or guided as extremists are. 5. Will not surrender to fragmentive extremists or be dominated by them. 6. Will describe openly, honestly and graciously the consequences of fragmentive extremism; and deal with them prudently, openly, honestly and graciously. 7. Will not make use of means which usually engender increased: alienation, suspicion, distrust, secrecy, defensiveness, anger, resentment, coercion and/or violence. 8. Will help people to transcend the collusive games of mutual self deception within which they and those around them are imprisoned --- and by which they are blinded to the reality of what they are doing and what is happening to them. 9. Will acknowledge the importance of paradoxical truths and of humility --- in the face of human limitations and circumstances. 10. Will distinguish between dilemmas for which there are no technical solution, and problems which can be solved through the use of sophisticated human technologies. 11. Will deal openly and honestly with spectrums of possibilities and alternatives; not just with either/or dichotomies in black/white, good/evil, truth/falsehood, right/wrong, friend/enemy, etc. 12. Will not entail any forms of exclusivity used as means for maintaining control --- for exclusivity so used is alienative and leads to fragmentation and disintegration. 13. Will focus more upon descriptions than upon prescriptions and proscriptions --- for the latter lead to the use of forms of exclusivity as means for maintaining control --- and so to alienation, fragmentation and disintegration of integrative persons and their integrative communities.
