There is no one-most-helpful way-to-classify the different kinds-of-realities that play-major-roles in 
Creating-Augmenting-and-Sustaining Our-Own-Alienative-Conflicts.    Even so, it may be helpful to 
recognize-the-variety of similar-kinds-of-realities that play-major-roles.

It is important to recognize, acknowledge, describe and clarify - - -

HOW all of the different realities interact-with-each-other - - -

to augment-or-mitigate Our-Own-Alienative-Conflicts - - -

and to focus upon what we ourselves can do to - - -

Mitigate-the-Realities-and-Interactions which - - -

Augment Our-Own-Alienative-Conflicts;

and to recognize what we can do to AUGMENT - - -

the-realities-and-interactions which MITIGATE - - -


Our OWN-EFFORTS are ineffective to the extent that they augment, generate or elicit:

A. Alienation                          rather than   Reconciliation
B. Suspicion                           rather than   Trust and Cooperation
C. Distrust                            rather than   Respect and Admiration
D. Violence                            rather than   Kindness and Generosity
E. Attempts to be in Control           rather than   Acts of Liberation
F. Resentment                          rather than   Profound-Appreciation
G. Secrecy                             rather than   Open-and-Honest-Dialogues
H. Withdrawal                          rather than   Movement toward Authentic-Intimacies
I. Detachment                          rather than   Involvement-in-Cooperation/Collaborations
J. Indifference                        rather than   Integrative-patterns-of-Engagement
K. Defensive-Responses                 rather than   Helping people to Mitigate Their-Own Alienative-Conflicts
L. Dishonesty                          rather than   Being Authentic-Creative-Collaborators
M. Pretentions                         rather than   Honesty about Actual-Powers-and-Limitations as Mortals
N. Greed and Hoarding                  rather than   Generosity
O. Attacks and Negations               rather than   Hospitality
P. Polarizations and Dichotomizations  rather than   Integrations of Diverse-Mutually-Complementary-Essentials
