It does little good to blame all consequences upon other people and/or circumstances beyond other people's control. It is more productive for people to ask what they might change which would be likely to lead to more integrative consequences. To be a fruitful focus for their attention the focus must be something: 1. Which they can change---in spite of other people's opposition. 2. For which there are cogent reasons for believing that it will lead to integration---rather than to disintegration. 3. Which entails some real change---not just an appearance or superficial change. 4. Which entails honesty and demands courage---not dishonesty and fear. 5. Which will likely lead to forgiveness, reconciliation, conflict resolution, and cooperation---not to anger, frustration, revenge, conflict escalation, and exclusivity. 6. Which will help people to transcend boundaries through dialogue---not lead people to draw boundaries which inhibit and confuse dialogue. 7. Increase the number of viable alternatives to choose among---not reduce the number of viable alternatives to choose among. 8. Clarifies the natures of elements, situations and relationships through accurate descriptions---rather than confuses them. 9. Reveals new truths in public forums---rather than discourages the discussion of embarrassing truths in public forms. 10. Helps people to transcend misleading questions, assumptions and commitments---rather than engenders renewed commitments to focusing attention upon misleading questions, assumptions and commitments.
