DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS cannot be healed through the use of methods/tools which are destructive, violent and/or coercive. The use of such methods/tools is usually the expression of emotions like: frustration, anger, resentment, rage, etc. --- on the part of emotionally/spiritually immature bullies. Such emotions do not motivate/guide: healing, reconciliation, cooperation, collaboration, integration, understanding, sharing, balance, liberation, etc. "Good" and "righteous" people who are tempted to use methods/tools which are destructive, violent and/or coercive --- are prone to believe and act as if "EVIL" resides within a relatively few other "different" people who are "guilty", "at-fault", "blame-worthy", and/or "EVIL"; e.g., within "terrorists". They do not acknowledge the central role which DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS play in hosting "EVIL". Their methods for reducing "EVIL" are flawed --- because they do not recognize the HOSTS of "EVIL"; i.e., DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS which need to be healed of dis-ease. Their flawed analysis of where "EVIL" resides --- leads to flawed efforts to destroy "EVIL" --- by destroying individual people who are falsely believed to be the isolated hosts of "EVIL". The resulting inappropriate methods create many new DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS and rarely mitigate much "EVIL" --- because the survivors resent both the destruction, and those responsible for the destruction of relationships which were important to them. We need to be cautious when we try to identify where "EVIL" is concentrated. If we are not cautious, we are likely to focus our attention primarily upon isolated people who are "different" in some superficial way; for example as regards: skin, hair, or eye color; religious, cultural, sexual or educational experiences; or just NOT-US --- without justice on our part. Prejudices based upon superficial differences do not promote both personal and communal integrities. We need to focus our attention upon characteristics of human RELATIONSHIPS which are regularly associated with: alienation, estrangement, misunderstandings, distrust, rejection, excommunication, etc. We also need to be careful not to take too seriously associations between characteristics which are purely accidental and not credibly associated through something like cause-and- effect connections --- as revealed through unbiased analysis.
