Course Keys **** The Global-Resources for a University-Course on Mitigating-Alienative-Conflicts can well include the lives and teachings of:

1. Sidartha of Buddhism, 2. The Torah and Prophets of the Jews, 3. The stories of Jesus' life and teachings, 4. The Koran recorded by Mohammed, 5. Gandhi's life and teachings, 6. Martin Luther King's life and teachings, 7. Nelson Mandela' life and the lives of other leaders of Non-Violent-Resistance, 8. Writings about Conflict-Resolution, Diplomacy, and Conflict-Mitigation.

How can students helpfully draw upon the above kinds of resources, and upon open and honest dialogues about people's responses to such resources --- to learn how to help people to Mitigate Their-Own- Alienative-Conflicts?

1. By-Letting-Go-of presuming that such conflicts can-with-integrity be resolved for-other-people by outsiders-to-such-conflicts. 2. By Letting-Go of presuming that the Alienative-Tools-often-used by people who are involved-in-and/or-victims of such alienative- conflicts; can be used to help Mitigate-Such-Alienative-Conflicts. 3. By-Letting-Go of the Essential-Foundations of the Alienative-Life -Styles of Domineering-Bullies, Mobbing-Mobsters and others who are Trying-to-Win Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception. 4. By-Letting-Go-of-Essential-Foundations of Coalitions of Addicts- and-their-Codependent-Supporters. 5. By-Letting-Go of the Essential-Foundations of the Most-Profitable- Concentrators of Wealth-and Powers; including: Corporate, Religious, Scholarly, Scientific, Secular, Military, Political and/or Economic. 6. By-Focusing upon Open-and-Honest-Dialogues about Many Mutually- Complementary-Well-Integrated-Resources: Texts, Teachings, Personal- Incarnations, rather than upon any Isolated-and-Presumably-Absolute: Truth, Ideal, Value, Virtue, Doctrine, Ritual, Assumption, Attitude, Approach, or Paradigm. 7. By Focusing upon Being-Together within Shalom's-Many-Gracious- Ways of Facilitating-both-Personal-and-Communal forms of Integrations- and-Integrities; rather than upon Alienative-Ways-of-Achieving Superior-Forms-of-Exclusivity --- that are widely and/or highly Admired and Honored by many Exclusive-People.
