What INDIVIDUAL is be BLAMED as GUILTY when THINGS go WRONG, and how to ASSIGN BLAME/GUILT? 2. What forms of PUNISHMENT are most likely to MOTIVATE INDIVIDUALS to behave as they SHOULD? 3. What COMMANDMENTS SHOULD be in place to define the difference between RIGHT and WRONG; between GOOD and EVIL residing within INDIVIDUALS? 4. What BOUNDARIES/LINES should be drawn to define the LIMITS within which INDIVIDUALS MUST live, in CONFORMITY to the STANDARDS of the community; else they will be PUNISHED for TRANSGRESSIONS into FORBIDDEN territories? 5. What FORMULAS, FORMALITIES, and RITUALS must diverse INDIVIDUALS in a community conform to before they are ACCEPTED into dialogue as GOOD members of the respected community? 6. What are the diverse forms of BIOLOGICAL and MENTAL DISEASE which lead people and communities into DYSFUNCTIONAL PATTERNS of RELATIONSHIPS which are: DISHONEST, ADDICTIVE, CODEPENDENT, COLLUSIVE, DOMINEERING, AGGRESSIVE, COERCIVE, ALIENATIVE, SICKENING, DISINTEGRATIVE, and DYSFUNCTIONAL? 7. What are the responsibilities of communities as WHOLE communities to attend to the HEALTH of the communities as WHOLE COMMUNITIES; responding to COMMUNAL DISEASES within themselves? 8. What can communities as WHOLE communities do to PROMOTE overall COMMUNAL: HEALTH, HONESTY, DIALOGUE, INTEGRITY, CIVILITY, WELL-BEING, COOPERATION, BALANCE, MUTUAL-UNDERSTANDING, etc? 9. What can communities as WHOLE-COMMUNITIES do to deal with the many forms of physical, biological, and mental GARBAGE/ENTROPY --- which threaten the HEALTH and WELL-BEING of the community as a WHOLE --- as well as the health and well-being of all the persons within the community. 10. What can communities as WHOLE-COMMUNITIES do to promote and facilitate truly I-THOU relationships in contrast to dishonest I-IT manipulations of each other, in efforts to control each other for selfish personal gain, without regard for the qualities of the RELATIONSHIPS among the many members of the COMMUNITY as a WHOLE? The point of the above ten questions is to be found in the contrast between what is pointed to by the UPPER-CASE-WORDS in the first five questions --- in as compared to what is pointed to by the UPPER-CASE-WORDS in the last five questions; rather than just in the questions alone --- considered without regard to the contrast between the nature of what is pointed to by the UPPER-CASE-WORDS in the first and last half of the ten questions above. Consider the contrast above! (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
