Adamant resistance involves stiffening, rigidity -- not just mental stiffening or rigidity, but also, via states of physical tension, stiffness of movement and pain.
It accumulates, instance by instance, occasion by occasion.
Only the movement of cooperation undoes that tension in fluid interplay. Then, as a person relaxes (beyond what he's used to), he loses his stiffness and recovers his freedom of movement and comfort. No manipulation from outside is needed.
Adamant resistance is anti-freedom -- not just anti-freedom of others, but also anti-freedom of self.
Inclusive cooperation is felt as greater freedom than adamant resistance.
Some people are afraid of it.
The bacteria in grape juice ferment the sugars in juice into alcohol, an inhospitable environment for the bacteria -- and so, they die.
The "alcohol" of human technology is carbon dioxide. The build-up of carbon dioxide leads to an inhospitable environment for humans and other lifeforms -- and so, they die from changes of their living environment.
A word, to the wise, is sufficient.
