Six Steps to World Peace

My Six Steps to world peace, in response to Centroid Nate Cull posting about his frustration
with the election result, and his inability to cope with the perceived
irrationality of America. To
summarize:

Six Steps to World
Peace

Draft 1,
11/14/2004

1. Confess your
frustration and desire to do better

2.
Articulate your painful feelings

3.
Recognize how your adversary shares them

4.
Identify how and where both sets of legitimate feelings lead to illegitimate
responses

5. Construct a superior response
which validates all legitimate feelings

6.
Convert adversaries to allies where possible, delegitimizing enemies along the
way

Its not much, but its a start.
Feedback, as always, is welcome.
