Alienative-Conflicts between True-Lovers and Domineering-Bullies --- Exist between their Differing-Conceptions of WHICH of-the-following:

Ideals, Values, Virtues, Behaviors, Traditions, Duties, Etc. - - - below the ==== line;


Personal-Integration-Processes? Communal-Integration-Processes? Personal-Integrities? Communal-Integrities? Personal-Sustainability? Communal-Sustainability? Being-Good-People? Being-Evil-People?

Being-Together within Good-Relationships? Being-Together within Evil-Relationships?


Letting-Go-of-Evil-Relationships? Clinging-to-Good-Relationships?

Letting-Go-of-Good-Relationships? Clinging-to-Evil-Relationships?


Standards for Good-Conformity? Standards for Good-Acceptability?

Standards for Good-Excommunications? Procedures for Good-Excommunications?

Procedures for Good-Shunnings? Procedures for Good-Imprisonment?

Procedures-for-Good-Collusive-Games of Mutual-Self-Deception? Standards for Peace, Unity AND Purity? Standards for Purity AND Loyalty? Standards for Purifications AND Confirmations?

Standards for Inclusion and Exclusion? Standards for Unity and Unilateral-Salvation?

Standards for Successful-UNILATERAL-Redemption? Standards for Rebirth and Renewal and Reconciliation?

AND SO for Permissible/Tolerable AND/OR Required:

Intimacies? Communications? Doctrines? Confessions? Rituals?
Personal-Friendships? Personal-Associations? Communal-Relationships?
Righteousness? Conformity? Trust? Influence? Powers? Wealth?
Concentrations? Success? Winnings? Losing? Failure? Confessions?
Affirmations? Negations? Dichotomies? Polarizations? Being-Unique?
Being-Creative? Being-Explorers? Being-Objective? Being-Reflexive?

We cannot with Personal-and-Communal-Integrity tolerate many Enduring-ALIENATIVE-CONFLICTS among the above possible Foci-for-Preoccupations-and-or Foci-for-Letting-Go!

We need to engage in Open-and-Honest-Dialogues about how the Whole-Crew of the Astronomically-Tiny Space-Ship-Earth can endure in sustainable ways by Sustaining Each-Other within Overall-Integrity in Shalom's Diverse-Ways that are CENTRAL in the Processes of Mitigating-Alienative-Conflicts and MITIGATING Within-the-Crew of Space-Ship-Earth EACH-OF-THE-FOLLOWING:

1. Distributive-Injustices; 2. Extreme Concentrations of Wealth, Powers and Influence; 3. Suspicion, Distrust, Coercion and Violence; 4. Domination and Mobbing; 5. Arrogance and Self-Righteousness; 6. Hubris; 7. Military-Industrial-Complexes; 8. Corporations focused exclusively upon Profits for Wealthy-Investors; 9. Confusion about the Roots of Human-Tragedies; 10. Confusion about the Natures and Roots of Good-and-Evil Reflexive-Relationships; 11. Alienative-Forms of UN-Balanced-Vulnerability; 12. Confusion about Healthy-Forms of Balanced-Mutual-Vulnerability; 13. Alienative-Standards and Alienative-Enforcement-of-Alienative-Standards; 14. Confusion about Reconciling-Forms of Balanced-Consensuses.

The following are essential to our survival with personal and communal integrity for God's-Crew:

Augmentations of Unconditional-Acceptance into Sustainable-Patterns of Open-and-Honest-Dialogues; Augmentations of Communal-Sanctuaries for Secure Personal-and-Communal Integrations/Integrities; Augmentations of Integrations-and-Integrities available for all Earth's-Crew to Enjoy-Together;

CAN THERE BE integrity-along-with any-form-of-preoccupation with any-form-of-reality --- IF it is long-term-clear --- that preoccupation with that-form-of-reality --- is unavoidably-and-tragically-linked to enduring Alienative-Conflicts and Their-Bitter-Fruits?

On the basis of what kinds and amounts of benefits; and for what kinds-and-numbers of people --- can the case be made that it is: wise, prudent and good to accept associated-enduring-patterns --- of alienation --- between the beneficiaries-and-the-victims of such tragic-benefits --- while accepting the processes of generating and granting those tragically alienative benefits?

The Long-Term-Mitigation of Enduring-Patterns-of-Alienation --- will become possible only to the extent --- that we learn to uncover and be in open-and-honest-dialogue about the ways in which Domineering-Bullies --- lead us TO-INTERNALIZE in our subconscious processes --- the Alienative-Conflicts between what True-Lovers Affirm-and-Demonstrate --- and The-Life-Styles of Domineering-Bullies --- clinging to their Compulsive-Fears-Anxieties-and-Preoccupations.

Modern medicine and doctors have learned how to Mitigate-Many-Diseases that are caused by micro-organisms (bacteria, viruses, prions, moulds, fungi, poisons, etc.) which undermine the integrities of metabolic processes within our physical bodies.

In addition to the above Kinds-of-Diseases and related Mitigation-Processes --- we need to learn how to Mitigate-Diseases which are rooted in Dysfunctional-Alienative-Life-Styles --- with their associated Internalizations within Persons-and-Communities of Alienative/Simplistic: Idealism and ISOLATED: Ideals, Values, Principles, Assumptions, Attitudes, Virtues, Paradigms, Rituals, Traditions, etc.

Attention needs to be focused upon the Central-Elements in the Inter-Related-Alienated-Life-Styles of: 1. Domineering-Bullies; 2. Mobbing-Mobsters; 3. Compulsive-Militarists; 4. Players-of-Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception; 5. Concentrators of Alienative-Wealth-and-Powers; 6. Corporations Focused only upon Excessive-Profits for Investors; 7. Political-Leaders Focused only upon Concentrated Political-Powers for "Investors"; 8. Concentrations of Powers within Religious-Institutions; 9. Negators of True-Lovers who are Being-Together within Shalom's Diverse-Gracious-Ways/Paths; 10. Dichotomizers/Polarizers of Issues-and-Questions; 11. Maintainers of Traditional-Alienative-Conflicts over Concentrations-of-Wealth-and-Powers; 12. Career Military-Leaders with no desire to Mitigate-Wars or Terrorism IN-NEW-WAYS; 13. People with Vested-Interests --- taking advantage of the benefits of the above Life-Styles.


1. True-Lovers --- Being-Together in Shalom's Communal Sanctuaries for Open-and-Honest-Dialogue; 2. Preventive-Health-Care-Workers --- serving all people within the crew if Space-Ship-Earth. 3. Diplomats --- actually helping people to Mitigate Their-Own Alienative-Conflicts. 4. Healthy-Parents --- helpfully nurturing Healthy-Children in Shalom's-Many-Gracious-Ways. 5. Healthy-Teachers --- helpfully Liberating-Students through Being-Together in Shalom's-Many-Ways.
