The cycle of abuse is a social cycle theory developed in 1979 by Lenore E. Walker to explain patterns of behavior in an abusive relationship. Walker interviewed 1,500 women who had been subject to domestic violence and found that there was a similar pattern of abuse, called the "cycle of abuse". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cycle_of_abuse
Walker also cautions that the length of the cycle usually diminishes over time so that the "reconciliation" and "calm" stages may disappear, violence becomes more intense and the cycles become more frequent.
1: Tension building-During this period, the abuser feels ignored, threatened, annoyed or wronged. To prevent violence, the victim may try to reduce the tension by becoming compliant and nurturing. We see President Obama and the left do this on a daily basis, lest we forget the 'Apology Tour'
2: Acting-out-During this stage the abuser attempts to dominate his partner, with the use of violence. The release of energy reduces the tension, and the abuser may feel or express that the victim "had it coming" to them. Anyone that has read any public boards after the Garland, TX attacks, read the similar comments 'Well, she shouldn't of provoked them'.
3: Reconciliation/honeymoon- The victim feels pain, fear, humiliation, disrespect, confusion, and may wrongly feel responsible. The abuser will often times ignore the event, or offer false apologies.
4: Calm-During this phase, the relationship is relatively calm and peaceable. This stage the enemy regroups and the false sense of rightness prevents separation or intervention. Next few weeks, it will be calm in America, she has earned her day of calm, after appeasing the Muslims.
Walker also cautions that the length of the cycle usually diminishes over time so that the "reconciliation" and "calm" stages may disappear, violence becomes more intense and the cycles become more frequent. But, don't worry. The cycle will start up again over some perceived offense from the muslims.
The point of terrorism is to inspire terror to control people. The point of the Garland, Texas Art contest was to tell the terrorists they are not feared and will not control us. They will kill you whether you draw cartoons or not because they believe you should be killed for not being a Muslim. This isn't about cartoons, it's about world domination of Islam.
Just like an abusive husband will continue to abuse if the wife lets him, Islam will continue to lash out every time they feel offended. It's time to quit walking around on eggshells like a battered wife, and stand up to the terror that is assaulting America.
