11And He was saying to them, "To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but those who are outside get everything in parables,
12so that WHILE SEEING, THEY MAY SEE AND NOT PERCEIVE, AND WHILE HEARING, THEY MAY HEAR AND NOT UNDERSTAND, OTHERWISE THEY MIGHT RETURN AND BE FORGIVEN."
I think that brother Paradosis, although he has been "unembellished", he talked the truth: The "outsiders" must be kept in "parabolic" isolation. This is the most loving way of relating with them: not by not having communion with them, or by not talking to them, or by not associating with them, but by using parables of our Truths (not known by them). Then by not seeing and by not perceiving the true meaning, while seeing and hearing "parables", they "might return and be forgiven".
As for the "drunkard" analogy, seems to me that Paradosis has a personal resentment of you, so he is the only qualified to explain his words.
In my point of view we are all "drunkard" thirsty for ourselves by a drunkenness that never gets satisfied. I suppose we must all follow therapy for a detoxification of egoism, selfishness and vanity.
