In his book, Leadership and Conflict, Speed Leas writes,
“As contradictory as it sounds at first, the weaker the people perceive themselves to be, the more likely they will fight dirty or use violence. When one believes he or she is powerless against odds that are too much, he or she is likely to believe that covert action, “dirty” fighting, devious tactics, and violent acts are justified ‘under the circumstances.’”

Philippians 4:1-3 (AMP) “THEREFORE, MY brethren, whom I love and yearn to see, my delight and crown (wreath of victory), thus stand firm in the Lord, my beloved. (2) I entreat and advise Euodia and I entreat and advise Syntyche to agree and to work in harmony in the Lord. (3) And I exhort you too, [my] genuine yokefellow, help these [two women to keep on cooperating], for they have toiled along with me in [the spreading of] the good news (the Gospel), as have Clement and the rest of my fellow workers whose names are in the Book of Life.”
