People gain a sense of security in having others who are with them to share their fears and their perception of "how things are". The mere presence of others who are together in agreement---is comforting and yields a sense of security. Insecure people often gather together with other like insecure people---to bolster their sense of the nature of the external threats which they all fear. They build each other's sense of fears of certain other people who are "different". Together they build their sense of whom to fear and why; making it all seem natural and inevitable. Their fears are obviously caused by those other people who are "different". Together they find the right place to put their blame. The tragic dilemma is that the other people who are "different" may have been doing exactly the same thing as those who fear them. The two groups of people are united in their fear of each other, but they do not know how much alike they are---both in their fears and in how they have nursed their fears. They do not know how much alike they are in not knowing how to transcend fears---and in not knowing how to truly resolve conflicts. This is because honesty, personal integrity and communal integrity have not been made to be important in their lives. It is not enough to have people around you who agree with you and make you feel comfortable and secure in what you perceive, believe and feel---if they are not honest people of integrity who enjoy communal integrity. The presence of agreeable people is disintegrative---if their agreement is focused upon who is to blame for distressing fears, anxieties, failures, mistakes and insecurity. If agreement is focused upon defensive attitudes and technologies---the agreement will lead to personal and communal disintegration; not to the enjoyment of personal and communal integrity. "Communities" which come "together" in fear and hold fears in common are not truly healthy communities---for they do not seek honesty and integrity. They seek to be together in identifying enemies and scape-goats. They do not seek to be together in seeking truth, honesty, personal integrity and communal integrity. Justification and success in the eyes of each other within a tightly nit community is futile---if they are closely associated with personal and communal disintegration; and with increasing alienation from the rest of the world and its life forms.
