Taboos, Excommunications, Violence, Coercion and other Alienative-Means-of-Control - - -
Are often respected, honored, reverenced and admired - - -
As having "REDEMPTIVE-POWERS".
In such situations, we may often respond to the use-by-others of the "Redemptive-Alienative-Means" - - -
With: Resentment, Anger, Rage, Alienation and:
1. Use such Alienative-Means to try to win Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception regarding the Redemptive-Powers of
the Alienative-Means-USED-BY-US and thereby Justifying the Alienative-Means with our Superior-Causes!
2. Seek-Security in submission, surrender, loss-of-hope, cynicism, blame, shame, etc. - - - while still Honoring the
Alienative-Means as being of NET-VALUE-TO-US!
Far too often we fail to transcend the Myths-of-Redemptive-Alienative-Means because we refuse to LET-GO of Preoccupations
with their False-Presumed-Powers to help us to - - -
Be-Together in the Many-Gracious-and-Cooperative Reconciling Ways-of-Shalom - - - in GOD'S WAYS OF PEACE!
Above there may be "independent" choices involved; e.g.,
1. Honor-and-Play Collusive-Games of Mutual-Self-Deception - - - with various possible foci of deceit, pretense, etc.
2. Leg-Go of all Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception - - - with various possible foci of True-Affirmations.
3. Honor-Myths regarding the "Redemptive-Powers" of Alienative-Techniques-Technologies-and-Technocrats.
4. Let-Go-Of Honoring-ALL-Myths regarding the Redemptive-Powers of Alienative-Techniques-Technologies-and-Technocrats.
People differ in regards to how independent and/or isolated they believe each choice can be - - - of each other choice;
and how independent the consequences are - - - of each other choice-and-its-consequences!
When we are playing our favorite Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception, such differences seem to make no difference
in our lives! ( Or so we pretend, and many people-are-together in such beliefs!) Our God-is-Great-to-US, made in our Image!
