Such persons and communities are often motivated by such destructive emotions. They attempt to use raw force and power to do/achieve what is impossible to do/achieve coercively. Through their coercive efforts they: 1. Engender additional destructive emotions such as frustration, anger, rage, resentment, etc. Such emotions are commonly projected upon others unfairly, unjustly, unwisely, and imprudently --- hence their destructive outcomes. 2. Engage in incoherent dishonest behaviors and in "coherent" dishonest behaviors --- such as collusive games of mutual self-deception --- all of which engender personal and communal disintegration. 3. Block the possibilities of learning from mistakes made --- thereby inhibiting their growth in knowledge, wisdom and prudence. 4. Block the possibility of dealing wisely with the challenges of changing environments and changing personal relationships. Such destructive emotions, behaviors and blockages grow in proportion to their existing presence --- and so grow exponentially; i.e., geometrically. People become increasingly prone to be coercive, forceful, assertive, contentious, and violent --- rather than knowledgeable, wise, prudent, gentle and effective. People try to win --- rather than try to resolve conflicts peacefully as peace-makers. In the absence of peacemakers who know how to effectively facilitate conflict-resolution within and among people --- people and communities disintegrate in tragic ways which they do not recognize.
