People seek to attack where others are vulnerable; not where they are invulnerable. People thus seek to be invulnerable to each kind of attack in ways which correspond to the kinds of attack. Thus people are defensive in ways which correspond to the kinds of attack which they fear are likely to occur---regardless of how likely they they are to occur in fact. It is fears which lead to being defensive---even though the fears may not correspond to objective grounds for fears. People fear being vulnerable to various kinds of attack, and so people fear various kinds of vulnerability. Rarely do people acknowledge that being defensive does not overcome the fears of being vulnerable. In fact, being defensive is an overt sign and acknowledgment of continuing to have fears of being vulnerable. Fears of being vulnerable are not overcome by achieving invulnerability. On the contrary, attempting to achieve invulnerability usually heightens fears of being vulnerable---for one person's attempt to be invulnerable makes other people feel even more vulnerable, and leads to them being more defensive and offensive. It is not even a zero sum game; it is a negative sum game, with all people losing in the end. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
