If we are utterly free of all fears, anxieties, extremisms, dichotomies, etc. --- we cannot deal wisely/prudently with people who are fearful, anxious, extremists and prone to reduce all issues to some form of either/or. Either/or issues can take many forms; among which are the following: 1. Pick only two dichotomous items to consider important and then pick one of the only two items as your one and only priority which is supremely important. 2. Here are only two items which you may consider as important; pick one of these two which I present to you and consider at as supremely important. 3. My/our way is supremely important; you must either agree with me/us and support me/us without doubt/ question; or you must be our mortal enemy. 4. God demands that we do as follows; you must obey without question or die a terrible death. From the point of view of people who are imprisoned within such attitudes, thoughts, feelings and convictions it is improper to suggest any creative alternatives for additional consideration. The only proper action is to say YES or NO to a given possibility which has already been formulated --- within the framework of a collusive game of mutual self deception. Such people's imprisonment, dis- ease, sickness, imbalance, extremism---is often beyond our imagination; and so it is nearly impossible for us to respond wisely/prudently. If an organization which is conducting business under Roberts' Rules of Order is dominated by people for whom the only proper action is to say YES or NO to a given motion which has already been formulated --- the organization may become paralyzed by conflicts between extremists who cannot respond wisely/prudently to each other's mutually exclusive ways of approaching and perceiving each other. Such an organization needs to find ways for finding common ground outside of procedures governed by Roberts' Rules of Order. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
