The consequence is that in the absence of the observance of essential virtues (and ceremonies which celebrate the essential virtues) --- negative feed-back-loops build up and further undermine both personal and communal integrities. The way to deal with EVIL is in the way that healthy people observe the importance of essential virtues and ceremonies --- so as to eliminate the conditions which feed destructive feed-back-loops. An observance/ceremony --- in time saves the need for nine observances/ceremonies at a later time when negative- feed-back-loops have cycled around many destructive times and a war looms over all people.
