This final chapter of the book presents reflections on the ubiquitousness and destructiveness of the social process of mobbing in all of the major institutions and organizations of human life—school, work, religious organizations, the legal system, and in communities where people live, such as condominium and homeowners’ associations. The reflections on mobbing include recognition of its significant health impact on adult workers and on children and adolescents, and suggest that these negative health consequences are of an order of magnitude that cannot ethically be ignored. Examples of mobbing introduced earlier in the book are revisited and reimagined in terms of how things might have turned out for the victims if the organizations involved had accepted responsibility for the development and resolution of the mobbing and responded differently.
