NOT-THINKING is dangerous in many situations, such as here below. Intimacy-and-Honesty are constructively inter-related. Violence-and-Alienation are destructively inter-related. The above inter-relationships are inter-related; within- the-two-contrasting kinds-of-associations; i.e., in being DIS-ASSOCIATED from each other in most instances. The above inter-relationships are also related to clarifying the relationships between Domineering-Bullies and True-Lovers --- who rarely understand each other at all well --- and so they are rarely able to cooperate with each other at all well. Integrative forms of Intimacy-and-Honesty are positively related to each other. Disintegrative forms of Violence-and-Alienation are negatively related to each other. The Diverse-Foci of Intimacy-and-Honesty are relevant in the above considerations; e.g., as regards perceiving and understanding the roles of the following in our personal and communal lives; 1. Collusive Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception, 2. Limited Global-Natural-Resources for our Global- Populations to consume; 3. Human Limitations-and-Foibles, 4. Human Desires-and-Fears regarding greater Intimacy- and-Honesty, 5. Human Desires-and-Fears regarding greater Violence- and-Alienation. The ways in which Domineering-Bullies fear True-Lovers and The Ways in which True-Lovers fear Domineering-Bullies; which are different and relevant to each other. We need to become aware of, acknowledge, clarify and transcend both kinds of fears. Such FEARS are neither good-leaders nor good-motivators. They are not worthy of trust, respect or support. Long traditions of trusting, respecting and supporting SUCH FEARS --- need to be transcended. We need to create new integrative traditions and perspectives.
