They do not begin or end with any interest in honest dialogue; treating other persons as no more than objects. Their attitudes and ways of treating other people are evil, because they flow from and engender estrangement and alienation. Personally abusive persons may treat other persons as objects, bodies, to be used and abused. Or, they may treat other persons as economic tools which are needed only for the purpose of getting certain jobs done at minimal cost. At another level other persons may be used as political pawns in power plays; as dispensable soldiers to be used on the battlefields of political, economic, religious, professional, business, scientific, or military wars in which they the pawns have no voice. Personally abusive people are sick, dis-eased, and their behaviors make other people sick, dis-eased. Personally abusive people try to control what cannot be controlled---in efforts to achieve security which cannot be achieved, because it can only be received as a gift. Personally abusive people need to accept the gift of love, but often cannot accept the gift of love because it is not offered, or because they refuse to accept the gift of love on its own true terms.
