Replying to LO18129 --

wonderful posting, Lee. thanks for sharing this (I'll be using your
thoughts in some of my workshops, so just wanted to let you know). In a
workshop I facilitated today on "finding agreement in conflict" I used
some of Follett's concepts on integrating conflict, the law of the
situation, and circular response (creating the conditions for cooperative
thinking). She also mentioned Ghandi's approach (she was a contemporary)
in similar vein as the one cited (Jurgensmyer). The father of civil
disobedience (a confrontive description, eh?) was also confrontive in a
nonviolent fashion. On Civil Disobedience is a tract I revisit relatively

I agree with you that the thread runs from millennia to millennia--from
generation to generation.

thanks again,
