Respect and obedience shown by submissive people toward powerful authorities who have become "properly" empowered. 2. The maintenance of respected traditions. 3. Respect shown towards reliably-selected ancient holy-scriptures. 4. Respect shown toward well-trained modern technical experts. 5. Proper rewards granted to successful managers of human, natural, financial, technical and financial resources and risks. 6. Open and honest dialogue about experiences, perceptions, discernments, understandings, insights, doubts, uncertainties, suspicious, etc. If people's expectations are not mutually: compatible, congruent, coherent, well-integrated, complementary, respected, honored, shared, etc.; it is unrealistic to expect that cooperation and/or collaboration will be demonstrated together; especially if some people demand that others cooperate because of some actual and/or threatened coercion, violence, punishments, preponderance of force/authority, etc. The above comments point to often tragic dilemmas which are NOT technical problems. Such dilemmas cannot be resolved by: technocrats, authorities, administrators, coalitions, etc. --- no matter how powerful, knowledgeable, experienced, well-trained, expert, wise, or prudent they may be. Dilemmas can be resolved only by the participants and victims in and of the central conflicts of the dilemmas. Outsiders may be able to serve as advisors and counselors. They cannot unilaterally resolve any dilemmas other than their own dilemmas. The above needs to be kept in mind when dealing with: terrorism, wars, religious-conflicts, prostitution, sexual abuse, addiction, weapons of mass destruction, WMDs, arms-races, the military-industrial-complex, nuclear-weapons, organized-crime, the drug trade, and domination by multi-national-corporations.
