The risks inherent in the following circumstances need to be dealt with by each community; and by the persons who find themselves within each community. Each of the following circumstances may lead to personal and/or communal disintegrations: 1. Rejecting and/or Excommunicating people because of labels imposed upon them --- due to other people being: domineering, ignorant, capricious and/or arbitrary. 2. The domination of people who are weak, poor, thirsty, hungry, sick, homeless, naked and vulnerable --- by people who are more powerful and/or more wealthy. 3. The selling of goods and/or services in ways which entail: pretense, dishonesty, mis-representations, deception, domination, coercion, threats, addictions and/or codependent relationships. 4. Taking advantage of vulnerable people --- by manipulating their needs and making them even more vulnerable --- by dominating them. 5. Imposing upon vulnerable people unrequested goods and/or services which they do not want and/or try to avoid; but yet imposing them --- under the presence that the impositions will be good for them. Personal and communal integrations and integrities are threatened whenever needs for: friendship, empathy, sympathy, understanding, support, intimacy, and sexual integrations --- are violated in ways suggested above. The integrity of each community and of the persons who find themselves in each community are threatened by practices which distinguish between people who have been labeled as "members of the community" and others who have been labeled as "not-members-of-the-community" or "not- yet-members of the community". What truly counts is presence in the community. It is pretentious to pretend otherwise. These are descriptive- statements, not proscriptive nor prescriptive statements. The key question to ask is whether the above descriptions are true and accurate descriptions --- regardless of the wishes of domineering people who are present. In any case; what are the conditions which lead to personal and/or communal disintegrations? How can we answer that question with enduring integrity?
