The children of the victims of one tragic cycle become the tragic abusers in the next cycle. The numbers and levels of coercion and violence increase from cycle to cycle --- except when true lovers through individual and cooperative efforts mitigate the abusive cycles. Within highly competitive communities the focus upon winning, superiority, and being "better" than others --- is often so exclusive that there is little focus placed upon humility, gentleness, reconciliation, forgiveness, healing, and cooperation. Leaders and followers who would otherwise excel in humility, gentleness, reconciliation, forgiveness, healing and cooperation --- are discouraged by the exclusive focus upon getting recognition through competition, assertiveness, being- better, being-superior, getting-ahead and being willing to sacrifice humility, gentleness, reconciliation, healing and cooperation. Often people who are tragically unbalanced are unbalanced in how they use and abuse otherwise "good" scriptures, confessions, prescriptions, proscriptions, laws, suggestions and admonitions. It is not only people who can be abused in tragic ways. Ideals, values, principles, hopes, and aspirations can be mis-interpreted, used and abused in ways which lead to tragic outcomes. The mis-uses, mis-interpretations, and abuses of one generation are visited upon the succeeding multitudes of generations because of the pain, anger, resentments, and disintegrations of persons and communities in the early generations.
