Such Theories may and may-not have been Confirmed-with-Integrity in terms of real Existential- Experiences. Theories-of-Conflict-Resolution deal with reflexive- realities; not objective-realities. Human-Conflicts are Reflexive-Realities. Theories-of-Conflict-Resolution thus cannot be about objective-realities and so cannot be confirmed in the objective-ways of the Objective-Sciences such as astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, etc. Further, Theories-of-Conflict-Resolution can naturally be biased by Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self- Deception; e.g., by trusting the Myth-of-Redemptive: Violence, Greed, Hubris, Arrogance, Self-Righteousness, Power-Concentrations, Wealth-Concentrations, Unilateral- Success and their Alienative-Relatives. The Traditional-Theories-of-Conflict-Resolution are rarely tested by scholars who are really interested in transcending the biases and prejudices of those who traditionally put their trust in the Traditional-Theories- of-Conflict-Resolution. The Traditional-Theories-of-Conflict-Resolution often assume the validity of statements such as those following: 1. There are people who are essentially/inherently evil and beyond the possibility of any redemption. 2. There are things, places, ideals, ideas, images and other "things" which are essentially/inherently evil. 3. There are conflicts between the above and those things which are "Of-God". 4. There are conflicts which can be resolved only through the destruction/elimination of that which is evil. 5. In such conflicts it is important to choose to be on the side that will ultimately win through a preponderance of power; e.g., God's Side. 6. Sometimes it is essential to ask God to be on the side you have already chosen to be on; to assure that you will be able to "Resolve-the-Conflict" with God's-Help. 7. Success in the above kinds of Conflict-Resolution depends upon having formed a United-Coalition of people who are without-question "Loyal-to-the-Cause" of Conflict- Resolution within the Framework-of-the-Above. There are True-Lovers who daily demonstrate many virtues in many coherent ways; including the following virtues: 1. Personal & Communal Integrations & Integrities. 2. Honesty, Authenticity, Transparency, Openness. 3. Balance, Mutuality, Generosity, Hospitality. 4. Civility, Kindness, Tolerance, Consideration. 5. Empathy, Sympathy, Compassion, Reconciliation. 6. Creativity, Imagination, Vision, Discernment. 7. Insight, Understanding, Scholarship, Learning. Such True-Lovers will find little that they can agree with in the preceding seven statements. Such True-Lovers often find ways to mitigate: conflicts, coercion, domination, controls, violence and attempts to resolve-conflicts in keeping with the first seven statements. True-Lovers are Graciously-Together within Shalom! True-Lovers help others be Together within Shalom! Be Graciously-Together in LOVE within Shalom! (c) 2006 by Paul A. Smith in "Search for Honesty and Integrity" (On Being Yourself Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
