Two Kinds Of People Win Two Kinds Of Community:
Waxing or Waning
From 'Role Of Morality' part of 'A Study Of Our Decline' by P Atkinson (19-Sep-19)

Two Kinds Of Understanding
There are two kinds of understanding dictated by the experiences of infancy, either the understanding reveres "Me" or "Us". Hence each citizen is striving either for personal benefit at communal expense or communal benefit at personal expense. Thus, depending if the majority loves "me" or "us" dictates whether the good of the society is being won by personal sacrifice, so waxing, or being sacrificed for personal gain, so waning.

Impact Of Majority Revealed In The Nature Of Marriage

When Unselfish
Order and Energy won by placing private whim second to community needs, so giving a lifetime of:
  • Fidelity and loyalty
  • Respect for others
  • Obedience from wife and children
  • Responsibility and dedication from husband
So
  • Vitalizing The Community by channelling sexual energy into work.
  • Setting clear roles and responsibilities for the two genders so everyone knows what is expected of them.
  • Establishing the notions of:
    • Authority: Unquestioning obedience to the father, setting the future relationship between the community and the citizen.
    • Nurturing: The care shown to all family members by the mother.
    • The importance of the group: With the family being more important than any single member.
When Selfish
Disorder and Apathy won by placing private whim ahead of communal needs as easy divorce discards the need for:
  • Fidelity and loyalty
  • Respect for others
  • Obedience
  • Responsibility and dedication
So
  • Enervating The Community by dissipating sexual energy
  • Confusing the roles and responsibilities for the two genders, creating uncertainty about duties and behaviour.
  • Discarding the notion of:
    • Authority: As there is none exercised without question, setting the future relationship between the community and the citizen.
    • Nurturing: The adults are only together out of self-interest.
    • The importance of the group: With everyone showing only a selfish concern.

Hence

Impact Of The Nature Of Public Understanding On The Community

Unselfish so Waxing
OrderedDevelopment Of Manners, Customs, And Laws: A fixed set of values allows us to learn from experiences and so establish and regularly enhance a code of living for the benefit of all.
PowerfulCompetent, Resolute and Sure allows the community to recognise and overcome its problems.
Selfish so Waning
ChaoticDestruction Of Manners, Customs, And Laws: Convenience determines what is good , just or true, and this varies depending upon popular mood, which prevents the adoption of any clear fixed code, and undermines any existing codes, to the detriment of all.
ImpotentIncompetent, Irresolute and Deluded prevents the community from recognising or resolving its problems.
