The two kinds of disintegration are inextricably inter-active and inter-related. Some fears are functional because they pertain to dealing prudently with objective realities which are real threats to personal and communal integrity. It is prudent to fear real and anticipated fires, floods, earthquakes, mud-slides, crashes, etc. Prudent fears lead people to take appropriate precautions and evasive maneuvers to avoid disintegrations due to that which is prudently feared. It is not always easy to distinguish between objective realities which are prudently feared because of the disintegrative threats which they pose --- and reflexive realities which are engendered by imprudent and/or reflexive fears. Fears can grow in the absence of threatening objective realities and in the absence of real personal threats. Fears often grow in the absence of: love, affection, mutual understanding, honesty; and in the absence of security enjoyed as the freedom to be safely vulnerable. Fearful people are defensive and engender relationships of: alienation, coercion, misunderstanding, deception, coercion, violence, and excommunication. Such relationships threaten both personal and communal integrity. It is prudent to fear both personal and communal disintegration --- and to take appropriate precautions and engage in evasive maneuvers to avoid both personal and communal disintegration. Thus it is prudent to fear patterns of: assumptions, beliefs, convictions, thought and behavior which lead people into relationships which threaten both personal and communal disintegrations. The dilemma is to find and invent integrative ways to respond prudently to such treats. Often people's responses to threats are dysfunctional responses --- because they echo the threats which they fear. It is imprudent to respond in-kind to threats; i.e., it is imprudent to behave in the same manner as do those people who have occasioned distressing threats and fears. Such imprudent responses in-kind --- occasion the growth of threats and fears; rather than the dying away of threats and fears. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
