Many whom are familiar with "occult" circles can see the existence of sacrifices - the question remains, the paradox, in essence:
Acceptance of the darker side of life
Fear of the darker side of life
Sacrifices thus being the brave whom have to accumulate and channel the collective fear of those performing the sacrifice.
For example, those afraid of being persecuted by a higher "God" will make a sacrifice to that "God" to save themselves - those that fear action X will inflict action X upon the innocent so that they both:
A) Are under the impression they can evade the same treatment
B) Are comfortable that the sacrifice will not be able to rebel
The truth is, many who perform such actions are fearful, it is fear, the primeval "pick him instead" that is engrained in the pyche of the weak, the strong, being those who will endure so that others must not.

I do not agree with the logic that a sacrifice is the ultimate act of cowardice...suicide is the ultimate act of cowardice....sacrifice for the sake of betterment for others on the other hand is the ultimate act of bravery
