Wearing masks-of-invulnerability; VERSUS being graciously-vulnerable in ways which are NOT: threatening, embarrassing, manipulative, or pretentiously calculated. 2. Unilaterally getting what they want at the expense of people who are more vulnerable than they are; VERSUS working tirelessly to facilitate and promote distributive justice guaranteed by healthy people to all members of their communities. 3. Unilaterally building for themselves presumably- invulnerable-sanctuaries at "different" people's expense; VERSUS cooperating with all different kinds of people in building and maintaining true-sanctuaries within which all different kinds of people are truly free to be safely vulnerable in private and public dialogues which are intimate, open and honest. 4. Making poor, powerless and already vulnerable people more-vulnerable; VERSUS graciously demonstrating vulnerability and inviting all different people who are poor, powerless and vulnerable to participate equally in true-sanctuaries which they Cooperatively-Build-and- Maintain-Faithfully --- By-Being-Together In-Love. 5. Trying to avoid taking risks by behaving in contentious, intolerant and extreme ways which are disintegrative; VERSUS taking the prudent risks which are entailed in cooperating in moderate, tolerant and balanced way --- so as to promote and facilitate diverse forms of integrations and integrities. 6. Pretending that it is good for all different kinds of people in all different kinds of situations to conform to standard-patterns-of-behaviors which are prescribed- and/or-proscribed by simple-eternal-commandments; VERSUS Being-in-Love and flexibly-adjusting behavior-patterns so as to most helpfully facilitate-and-promote personal-and- communal integrations-and-integrities for many-different- kinds-of-people within many-different-and-changing circumstances-and-situations. (The former promotes and facilitates dishonesty, while the later promotes and facilitates honesty. Similar statements may be made about other contrasting vices and virtues. ) 7. Pretending that they are NOT-ENGAGED in DISINTEGRATIVE coercion, violence and contentiousness; VERSUS not being able to be helpfully-and-publicly fully-open-and-honest about their most integrative-open- and-honest- relationships --- because of True-Lovers' wise-prudent-gracious consideration of domineering- people's emotional-immaturity regarding-such-openness- and-honesty. 8. Playing-collusive-games-of-mutual-self-deception; VERSUS graciously trying-to-liberate victims-of and supporters-of collusions --- from suffering the bitter- fruits-and-consequences of their-collusions.
