In the healthy communities people are interested in and dedicated to promoting both personal and communal integrity. In the described situations people are interested in and dedicated to the "proper" management of vulnerability --- usually with special interests being focused upon invulnerability for self and special friends within exclusive groups; and upon the points of vulnerability of those who are excluded. Peacemaking, shalom, tranquility, relaxation, reconciliation, cooperation, personal integrity and communal integrity are common in healthy communities. Preparations for war, conflict, contentious contests, self-righteousness, arrogance, legalisms, judgments, condemnations, punishments, ex-communications, alienations and strained relationships are common in the absence of liberating gifts of the freedom to be safely vulnerable. By their fruits we may know which situations are which. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
