The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that nobody wins an argument when both sides are right and they both want the same ultimate result, as when one side is concerned with the welfare of individuals, and the other is concerned with requirements for a healthy population. And the third side recognizes that the healthy population requires a healthy environment to live in. The only hope for a good solution is a positive “left-brain” discussion based in physical and emotional factual reality (including the “right-brain” emotions). Not compromise, but an effort to provide for all the most important positive needs of all the emergent parts of the organism. If this is not possible, perhaps because of the complexity of the interacting problems, then the whole interacting network is likely to crash. So the bottom line really is that good talk is the most important “action” that we can do, and bad talk is probably the most harmful. And good talk requires generosity.
