It is risky to try to appear to be what in truth we are not. When we try to control our appearances, we try to control how others perceive us and respond to us. We try to control other people like us, who resent anybody trying to control them. We risk alienation and all the disintegrative consequences of alienation.
It is risky to behave in ways which undermine other people's confidence that we can be trusted to facilitate, promote and demonstrate personal and communal integrities. Being certain that we are always absolutely right and righteous --- is a risky business.
