We will do well and recover from many forms of dis-ease, disease, illness and sickness --- only to the extent that we begin to work intentionally to mitigate the negative aspects of our lives --- so that the more positive aspects have a chance to grow in healthy ways. 1. A "Systems-Analysis" of what is likely to be involved in an intentional communal effort to mitigate the negative aspects of our lives --- will need to transcend the challenges inherent in: detecting, naming, describing, transcending and subverting --- the various forms and manifestations of: bias, partiality, prejudice, one-sided- ness, prepossession and exclusivity. 2. The above comments are particularly relevant to discerning how most helpfully to respond to thoughts, articulations and presentations --- which are incoherent, arbitrary, unilateral, capricious, domineering and/or un-informed in regards to human: assumptions, attitudes, values, ideals, principles, traditions, habits, rituals, inclusions, exclusions, confessions, doctrines, polities, commandments, scriptures, idols, judgement-criteria and sources-of- authority. 3. A comprehensive "Systems-Analysis" appropriate to the above considerations will give careful and honest consideration to patterns present as regards: inter-dependencies, causes-and-effects, costs- and-benefits, distributions-thereof; occasions- of-neglect, occasions-of-tragic-absences, human- limitations, human-vulnerabilities, human-fears; humane-aversions, humane-preferences, humane- priorities, humane-differences and as regards Planet-Earth's-resources such as: the multitude of species of plants and animals; clean-water-and-air, concentrated-mineral- resources, concentrated-stored-forms-of-energy; kinetic, heat, chemical, nuclear, gravitational, electro-magnetic, and sun-light- energy; human-creativity, human-knowledge human-wisdom, human-cultures, human-histories, books, art, music, stories, human-libraries, information-data-bases, doctors, diplomats and peacemakers. 4. A comprehensive consideration of the above will also include the recognition, naming, describing, transcending and subversion of the "Fallen Powers That Be" that block, inhibit, repress, subvert and destroy realities which are worthy of reverence, respect, honor and support. Such "Fallen Powers That Be" may include: Unlimited-power-concentrations, Greed, covetousness, selfishness, narcissism, Unlimited-wealth-concentrations, Envy, anger, rage, rebellion, retribution, Injustices, dis-ease, disease, sickness, Exclusivity, dichotomies, unilateral-demands, Excommunications, banishments, punishments, etc. Attitudes, assumptions, beliefs, and convictions which lead to the augmentation of the negative aspects pointed to above; will not help to mitigate the negative aspects pointed to above in the short term or in the long term.
