Alienating themselves from those people upon whom they have "successfully" imposed such rules? 2. Violating national and international rules defining the human rights of citizens who are: open, honest, civil, gracious, generous, hospitable and reverent toward others? 3. Themselves demonstrating arrogance, self- righteousness, dishonesty, addictions, and collusive- games-of-mutual-self-deception. 4. Themselves triggering disintegrative feed-back- loops of behaviors which UNDERMINE both personal and communal forms of integrities of diverse kinds --- among people who have been healthy before? 5. Subverting/interfering-with healthy covenants of gracious mutual-understandings --- which have been the basis for: gracious, civil, open, honest, generous, hospitable and reverent --- personal relationships. 6. Violating the most integrative/gracious teachings of the original founders of most of the widely respected religious traditions. 7. Resorting to unwelcomed forms of intrusion, coercion, violence and/or threats. 8. Undermining, subverting, suppressing and/or repressing: creativity, authenticity, common-sense and wisdom? 9. Promoting: anger, contentiousness and terrorism? 10. Undermining: cooperation, collaboration, conflict-resolution and peacemaking. If there are few, if any, such well documented occasions of success --- why are they not celebrated, and why are there not more of them? What helpful conclusions should we draw from there being few success stories? (c) 2005 by Paul A.
