By adopting the set of assumptions and attitudes demonstrated by the most forceful advocates of such behaviors --- in trying to overcome them by using their favorite means. 2. While still ignorant of the deep roots of the emotions, beliefs, assumptions, attitudes and prejudices which are highly correlated with demonstrations of such vices. 3. While believing that what is required is MORE: force, power, wealth, technologies, experts, self- confidence, weapons, pretentiousness and arrogance --- than has been demonstrated in the past. 4. While believing that exclusivity, alienations, excommunications, and superiority over our labeled enemies are the essential ingredients for any successful war against such vices. 5. While believing that evil is located in individual labeled people who are INFERIOR-TO-US; rather than in OUR-DYSFUNCTIONAL-RELATIONSHIPS with such alienated people. 6. While assuming and believing that the greatest and most-important actions are the UNILATERAL-actions of DOMINANT-INDIVIDUALS --- rather than the healthy-lives of cooperative-communities of gracious-peace-makers who effectively resolve troubling conflicts among-themselves together on the WAY-of-SHALOM. 7. Acting as if it is more important who wins and who loses; than who work together cooperatively in gracious ways which are: open, honest, healing and facilitating both personal and communal integrations and integrities. 8. Concentrating much Diversionary-Public-Attention upon Spectator-Sports which feature: conflict, violence, opposition, negation and destruction within: athletics, entertainment, business, races, contests, politics, religion, and luxury living --- away from Patient-Tenacity in facilitating and promoting cooperation in the Integrative-Way of Shalom.
