It is a process, dynamic, dialogical, agonistic, and messy. Does that answer your question?
I can not agree with your assertion that there must be an end. Why do you believe that to be the case? I do not think that there will ever be a end to struggle. Liberation, justice, freedom, are goals, but I do not think that we will every fully realize them. But I would assert that there is value in the struggle, ala Camus' The Myth of Sisyphus.
