From my friend Zat Rana, http://www.designluck.com
Almost everybody has some sort of an attachment to some sort of an identity that conforms to generalized rules of operation. Even when we don’t explicitly state it, we do often live it.
While it’s tempting to think that our ideology is the right one, and, the one that should be enforced on others, the chances are that this belief is borne more from a self-centeredness we are not even aware of than the fact that we have an objective, moral high-ground.
There is no way to get out of this zero-sum game if you begin from a position of establishing dichotomies. The only way to truly win is to understand: What makes others different from you? What cultural forces are you not accounting for? How do we better integrate each side?
