Addicts threaten to deny people essential pleasures as a means to get them to conform to the desires and expectations which the addicts have. The addicts cloth their desires and expectations with the vestments of respectability, morality and propriety; but the addicts' coercion and deprivation are real regardless of what masks hide the reality. Victims of dictatorial addicts are often codependent supporters of the dictatorial addicts. For their own short term advantage they support their addicts, while becoming more and more confused about what their support is doing to their own personal and communal integrity. Addicts deprive people of the just rewards for their work. Addicts deprive people of the pleasures which are essential to healthy living. Punishments which deprive people of the security which is essential to health are not helpful punishments; they lead to disintegration. Essential pleasures are not rewards for conformity, and should not be withheld and regarded as rewards for conformity to any standards of propriety. To permit essential pleasures to be rewards for conformity is disintegrative behavior which is evil in its alienative consequences. The pleasure of the security of authentic love is an essential pleasure without which disintegration occurs. Withholding the pleasure of the security of authentic love as a reward to be conferred upon those who properly conform, is addictive behavior which leads to the evils of personal and communal disintegration and alienation.
