There are at least two faces of evil. Respected and powerful controllers engage in works that engender alienations between them and other people, who are not preoccupied with issues of control and/or who are relatively weak, poor, dis-eased, and/or vulnerable. Those people who are are relatively weak, poor, dis- eased, and/or vulnerable become alienated from the controllers. They are prone to be defensive in ways which the powerful people regard as adequate justification for their own alienative actions. People on opposite sides of mutual misunderstandings can often be characterized as being preoccupied with: CONTROLS LOVE SYSTEMATICS SPONTANEITY CONSERVATION CREATIVITY RESPECTABILITY AUTHENTICITY CONFORMITY HONESTY APPEARANCES MOTIVATIONS ROLES ASPIRATIONS RITUALS INTIMACY Exclusivity undermines the universal human need for balance. Extremists engage in violent conflicts which are used to justify each other's peculiar form of extremism --- with no hope on the horizon for the creative resolution of the conflicts. Extremists cannot trust each other even enough to come to understand each other and each other's complementary needs, aspirations, values, ideals and hopes. All extremists are in need of salvation which transcends their mutually exclusive convictions regarding what is ultimately real, and worthy of respect. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
