So many misunderstandings come from people not having followed the same ‘journey’ in getting to where they are. I see this so often in groups arguing or seeming to agree and then doing completely different things.
One of my favourute things is to take such a group along a path of discovery, starting from some basic principle, getting them to agree on that, and then taking them back into their discussion/ argument, step by step and let them unfold the same journey together. It is amazing just how fast they can come together when the all start from the same place with some agreed destination.
Of course then the difficulty is spreading the word of how their logic together got them there.
Same problem, just a bigger pool of people…….
