Often they do not make actual frontal attacks upon communal integrity---so it is not fair to be critical of them by claiming that they do so. Their threat is the more subtle one of imbalance and neglect. They do not openly and publicly acknowledge the paradoxical way in which personal integrity, fulfillment and satisfaction depend upon communal integrity, fulfillment and satisfaction. They act as if there is no such interdependence. The often act as if all that matters is the fulfillment of their particular beliefs, ideals, values and goals---through commitments, dedication and work. Rugged individualists and compulsive analysts rarely articulate their assumptions, ideals, values and goals openly and publicly---for to do so would expose their lack of integrity. The are not given to careful reflection, meditation and prayer about such things---for they do not want to be embarrassed. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
