In the absence of clear criteria which are regularly re-evaluated in terms of our collective experiences---we are likely to be mislead by narrowly defined professional groups and sets of specialists. Professional groups, and groups of specialists, are worthy of respect and general public support only to the extent that they: 1. As a group genuinely promote both personal and communal honesty and integrity. 2. Deliberately design their educational programs so that over a number of decades the evolution of their educational programs, and of their profession, and of the vast majority of their specialists---is toward increased personal and communal honesty and integrity. 3. Openly and explicitly deal with the reflexive threats which narrow specialization, collusive games of mutual self deception, organizational/personal addictions, and human alienation pose to them achieving the above goals. 4. Base their collective sense of self-respect and pride upon the behavior of the vast majority of the members of the profession or specialty group, who are "average" and near the median; rather than upon the behavior of a relatively few people who are held up as exceptionally worthy of respect and support. 5. Promote inclusivity as a goal, in contrast to exclusivity; and so promote respect for sharing knowledge, talents, and skills---rather than promote respect for the concentration of knowledge, talents and skills in an exclusive club of exceptional professionals and specialists. 6. Overtly and explicitly encourage all people to view the contributions of the members of their profession and speciality to the integrity of their communities---in terms of broad ideals and values; rather than in terms of narrowly defined ideals and values which are self serving to the profession/specialty and its members. 7. Promote balanced family life styles of the members of their professions and specialties; and the prudent involvement of all people in working to promote and maintain community health in its broadest senses. 8. Encourage professionals and specialists to interact frequently and widely across boundaries which separate and alienate people from each other. 9. Encourage realistic long-range-planning and corporate procedures for setting priorities, budgeting, and the honest allocation of scarce resources through fully democratic processes. 10. Work honestly to transcend the limitations of their own paradigm, ideals, values, traditions, and taboos. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
