The perfection of a new legal, moral, ethical or professional code of conduct. 6. The development of new judicial procedures for the dispensing of justice fairly, and of punishing wrong-doers appropriately. 7.

While many people have sincerely seen grounds for hope in many of the above---they have often failed to give any consideration to the importance of: personal and communal integrity, honesty, personal needs, personal desires, personal fulfillment and personal satisfaction--- as other considerations which are also important as balancing factors. No new grounds for hope will bear sweet fruit if they are exclusively focused upon in ways which effectively block all consideration of complementary grounds for hope. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
