The effects of the Alienative-Behaviors of Domineering-Bullies and Mobbing-Mobsters - - - hide and/or confuse our understandings of what are the greatest threats to the Sustainability of our Global-Civilization within this Astronomically Tiny-and-Isolated BLUE-SPHERICAL Space-Ship-Earth. How can we of the crew, most graciously and helpfully UNCOVER-and-CLARIFY what has been hidden and confused? Consider the following possibilities; we CAN by: 1. NOT augmenting or further hiding and/or confusing our own patterns of Alienative-Conflicts, Chaos, Estrangement, Distrust, Suspicions, Arrogance, Greed, Self-Righteousness, Violence, Coercion, Domination and Winning of Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception. 2. Being Mutually-Committed to Mitigating Our-Own Alieantive-Conflicts and their Dysfunctional Tragic-Fruits of Simplistic-Idealism-and-Ideologies. 3. Graciously-Helping-Each-Other to ask Truly Helpful Essentially-New-Questions - - - and to respond to such Essentially-New-Questions in the Reconciling ways of LOVE. 4. SHOWING by our actions that it IS Possible TO FIND WAYS TO CLEARLY DEMONSTRATE SOME CLUSTERS-of: Values, Ideals, Principles, Virtues and Grounds-for-Hope; that can and must be affirmed in Mutually-Sustainable-Ways within Appropriate-Contexts - - - for a civilization to be SUSTAINABLE. 5. Making clear to each other - - - that Either-Or-EXCLUSIVITY is not LONG-TERM-SUSTAINABLE in the presence of Space-Ship-Earths' Finite-Exhaustible-Material-Resources. 6. Making clear that to be SUSTAINABLE - - - a CIVILIZATION must affirm WHOLE-CLUSTERS-of Mutually-Complementary: Values, Ideals, Principles, Virtues and Grounds-for-Hope. 7. Making clear that it is never essential to AFFIRM - - - any form of Isolated-Alienated Superiority-or-Domination, achieved by some isolated-part of any reality. 8. Making clear that we never know any Absolute-Truth - - - which trumps all partial-truths in the Alienative ways of Domineering-Bullies and/or Mobbing-Mobsters. It is essential that affirmations of Coherent-Clusters of Mutually-Complementary: Values, Ideals, Principles, Virtues and Grounds-for-Hope - - - Be Matched-Appropriately to the Circumstances and Contexts wherein the Coherent-Cluster will help people to Mitigate-Their-Own Alienative-Conflicts. We CANNOT demonstrate Personal or Communal Integrities and Integrative-Processes - - - by focusing upon any ONE: Person, Coalition, Ideal, Value, Principle, Virtue or Ground-for-Hope - - - in isolation and without regard for any complementary consideration. Each ABSOLUTE-EXCLUSIVE-TRUTH is idolatrous in Isolation-and-Alienation. Be Aware and Beware - - - in the Informed, Thoughtful and Gracious Ways of LOVE. For a Civilization to be Long-Term-Sustainable, its Prevalent-Leaders must Transcend and Let-Go-Of each Idolatrous-Absolute-and-Exclusive TRUTH-or-IDEAL that exists in Isolated-Alienation - - - apart from other Complementary-Truths, Ideals, Values, Principles, Virtues and Grounds for Hope. Such Alienative-Realities undermine Mutually- Complementary forms of Personal-and-Communal Integrities-and-Integrative-Processes. Domineering-Bullies who are trying hard to Be-Faithful to their own Isolated-Life-Styles, Ideals, Values, Principles, Virtues and Grounds-for-Hope - - - cannot tolerate the Presence within their communities of True-Lovers - - - who are working to Mitigate their Own Alienative-Conflicts with people who are threatening the Long-Term- Sustainability of the Civilization of the Whole-Crew of God's Astronomically Tiny-and-Isolated BLUE-SPHERICAL Space-Ship-EARTH. ============================================================================================================================================================================================== Be-Together within Shalom's Sanctuaries Discerning through Open-and-Honest-Dialogues What-IS and What-is-Not ESSENTIAL-TO-CIVILITY-AND-TRUE-CIVILIZATIONS!
