Is the woman who is the Executive Secretary working for an addictive President, CEO or Chairman of the Board of Directors of a corporation --- to be encouraged to tolerate, honor, obey and be a codependent supporter of her employer --- out of loyalty to her corporation and to her fellow workers? Is the wife of, secretary to, or follower of a religious leader who is addictive in his "leadership style" --- to be encouraged to tolerate, honor, obey and be a codependent supporter of the religious leader --- out of loyalty to their religious vows, or loyalty to the religious institution locally and/or as a whole? Are the supporters and employees of a political leader who is addictive in his or her "leadership style" --- to be encouraged to tolerate, honor, obey and be a codependent supporter of the political leader --- out of loyalty to leader or political party locally or as a whole? Is a member of a recognized profession which is addictive in its overall approach to its work and/or clients --- to be encouraged to tolerate, honor, obey and be a codependent supporter of the dominant paradigm --- out of loyalty to its disintegrative leaders, ideals, values and principles? According to what integrative ideals, values and/or principles are people to be encouraged to transcend the dysfunctional patterns of behavior which are suggested above? What are some of the many essential foundations for integrative cooperation which should be regarded as transcending all: spouses, Presidents, CEOs, Chairmen of Boards, religious leaders, religions, political leaders, political parties, professional leaders and professions? (Here "essential" does not connote "most important". Here "essential" connotes that in the absence of that which is an essential foundation --- there is a great probability that personal and communal disintegration will occur due to the absence of that essential foundation.) We need to recognize that addictive leaders who play central roles in guiding collusive games of mutual self deception, consciously or unconsciously, are bound by virtue of their leadership to defend without qualification their addictions and collusions; and to ask/require that their followers do likewise. Depending upon the realm of their leadership --- they will appeal to various kinds of powers, principalities, authorities, scriptures, spirits, institutions, rules, commandments, regulations, laws, traditions, etc. --- as the grounds for demanding that their followers: perceive, discern, think, decide and behave much as they themselves do. Non-conformity is taboo --- to be punished by condemnation and excommunication, if not by execution of some overt, covert, or symbolic form. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
