Random unfortunate accidents in which people get hurt and after which apologies, comfort and support are offered; and in contrast, 2. Systemic patterns in which dominant people take advantage of and abuse people who are: hurt, not apologized to, comforted or supported---because they are vulnerable, weak and/or poor. In the instances of the second kind common outcomes include: alienation, distrust, resentment, defensiveness, anger, revenge---personal and communal disintegration. In the instances of the first kind while there is hurt and pain the outcomes include: reconciliation, trust, appreciation, intimacy, thankfulness---personal and communal integration. What is important is the overall pattern, not isolated occasions of hurt and pain. The "logic" which occasions the overall pattern is important. Alienation and violence flow from an overall "logic" which leads some dominant people to be regular abusers of the vulnerability of submissive people. Personal and communal integrity flow from an overall logic which leads all people to freely offer and thankfully accept gracious gifts of the freedom to be safely vulnerable---and to offer apologies, nurture and support to people who are the victims of unfortunate accidents which involve hurt and pain. It is important to recognize, name, describe and honestly talk about the difference between the above patterns. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
