People who seek to benefit from clear and enduring understandings about how we can Mitigate-our-Own- Alienative-Conflicts - - - need to-seek-out and to-engage-in Gracious-Open-and-Honest-Dialogues - - - with people who differ in the own understandings of texts which trouble them. Such people need To-Be-Together In-Their-Readings of the Troubling-Texts; and in their sharing of their differing-responses to the Troubling-Texts. The more we spend our time with people whose responses to texts that are echoes-of-our-own-responses - - - the less we gain in understandings of and in learning about whatever troubles us and others! Such Isolation does-not-help-us to Mitigate-our-Own-Alienative-Conflicts! That should not surprise us or others; if we are In-Tune With-Our-Environments!
