Abstract: 

This book is my attempt to answer some of the big questions of my life: Where does oppression come from? Has it always been with us, just "human nature"? What can we do to change it? What does individual healing have to do with struggles for social justice? What does social justice have to do with individual healing? Why do members of oppresses groups fight each other? Why do some who experience oppression develop a life-long commitment to fighting oppression, while others turn around and oppress groups fight each other? Why do some who experience oppression develop a life long commitment to fighting oppression, while others turn around and oppress others? This book will help answer these and other relevant questions.
