Episode Description

There are four realities that are present in the stressed out or very injurious nation. People do not know who they are or they have a false picture as to who they are, they do not sustain their relationships through deep friendliness, defenses are used repeatedly, and contentment skills are minimal. Contentment skills are those abilities to sustain long-term relationships, intra- community and inter-community. When a nation is in pain and stress, psychological defenses will arise. Psychological Defenses have two purposes: to give pleasure and to avoid pain. A person’s identity is negatively affected. It can be affected in one of two ways. The first way is that the person will not have a clear, nor positive, picture of who he or she is within the nation. In a chaotic nation neither accurate nor appreciative insights are shared. That being the case the individual at the very best will not have a clear sense of citizenship. At worst, he or she will have a deeply negative instinctive view of who he or she is.
