Some congregations remain vulnerable to the precipitators. They experience cycles of strife. The contributing conditions are never modified. They stand ready to be aroused and once again reinforce the precipitation conditions. These congregations are easy to recognize. They continuously focus on external conditions to the exclusion of internal ones. They give no thought to their own immune response. They do not think systemically; they have leaders who are unresponsive, perhaps as frustrated and helpless as the rest of the organism.
