Such truths are perceived as real dangers to participants in collusions; and may be regarded as if they were objective threats of a physical sort. Thus parents in an addictive society often feel a duty to protect their children from threatening truths which are experienced as being evil threats. To avoid the dangers which are present in parents seeking to protect children from threatening truths, each community needs to educate its citizens to recognize in themselves and others the dynamics of addictive and collusive processes so as to be able to defend themselves against the disintegrative parenting processes to which those dynamic processes lead. The dynamics of addiction and collusion are devastating to people who have not experienced each other as being true in open and honest relationships. If they have not known themselves and each other truthfully in authentic intimacy, they seek technical fixes as substitutes in an effort to get what they are missing, but which they do not know in any intimate way. Such efforts to achieve a fix are the dishonest processes of addiction, codependence and collusion. The efforts are based upon distorted images of reality generated in dishonest childhood experiences. Parents in an addictive society are often victims of childhood experiences of dishonest abuse, and they usually have not transcended such experiences. They often seek to protect their own children from such abuse, and in their turn seek to do so in dishonest ways which lead to a repetition of the cycle of abuse and addiction. To break the cycle of abuse and addiction young people need to transcend their experiences of childhood abuse before they become parents and abuse the next generation of children in another cycle of the dynamic process of addiction, codependence and collusion. The dynamics of the process need to be honestly recognized, named, described and dealt with. Without names and honest descriptions it is hard to deal creatively with the disintegrative process.
