An essential to integrity is balanced consideration of and affirmations of many complementary: values, ideals, principles and healthy role models. This essential is NOT about lacking convictions, commitments, or loyalty. It is NOT about giving in to external pressures and expectations. It is NOT about letting others run our lives. Extremists, fanatics, terrorists and single-issue advocates are unbalanced. People who reduce every issue to either/or questions are unbalanced. People who cannot acknowledge continuous spectrums of opportunities and possibilities are unbalanced. People who are unfamiliar with and prejudiced against: minorities, poor people, weak people, women and children --- are unbalanced. In the absence of balance people become arrogant, self-righteous, controllers, and alienated from other people whom they regard as unworthy, lesser, and maybe even as evil. Such people often think that for them to be "good", other people must be "evil"; for them to "get ahead" other people must be "set back". Unbalanced people contribute to personal and communal disintegration. Unbalanced people cannot be leaders toward true unity. It is foolish to entrust them with honor, support, responsibility or power. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
