In the absence of love, affection and acceptance --- children grow up to be fearful and insecure adults---who are always defending themselves against outside threats to their "integrity". Tools of various kinds are essential in such defensive efforts; including physical tools/weapons, exaggerated forms of self-esteem, exclusivity, laws and judicial procedures. In the absence of balance and love such defensive efforts lead to tragic consequences. Some of us are good at the rationalization of our defensive efforts. Our minds work overtime --- while our hearts are asleep. Our hearts have been injured and we over-compensate for our disability to love -- by over- using our minds and abilities to manipulate words, ideas, ideals, values and principles. With them we can manipulate other people's attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, convictions, thinking, decisions and actions --- especially if they are poor and weak --- they are not as gifted as we are in manipulative skills. We are good at painting pictures in which we are the focus of favorable attention --- and people who are different are placed in dark inferior places in the picture. God has judged them to be inferior to us --- because of our ability to manipulate them in our superior defenses of our selves. Praise be to God for His wonderful mercies which He has bestowed upon Us. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
