Dr. DASH: But that if in point of fact we recognize our own flawedness and own imperfections, we should not visit them on other people.
What came to mind was the thought that in a sense humanity has a deeply-rooted belief in it's own inherent flawedness and that the only way we could ever attract the love of God (or of anybody for that matter) is to hide all that we feel is inherently shameful in us.
If we accept that we as human beings are "sick with shame" then it follows that we will do everything in our power to prevent the exposure of what we feel is our intrinsic flawedness.
