"Politics have no relation to morals."

by Niccolo Machiavelli

Internal politics can be taken as evidence of a lack of shared goals.  Without a shared goal, our only option is to pursue an agenda that makes sense ‘to survive’, because ‘it’s right’, or ‘so I get ahead’….using whatever means of influence are available.  Once shared goals are in place, which (by definition) we can only achieve together, the process becomes one of moving past differences in perspective so WE reach OUR goal.  Getting to shared goals is not only a process of enlistment, but a deeper dialogue of discovery.
