Depending on where you stand the views of one room are always different.
What I've learned from this week of blogging is that the largest obstacle to any sort of healing or unity is the inability to get past self-interest. I'm not talking about the obvious kind of self-interest when you're glossing over your own bum in the passing window, but the self-interest when inventory is done only for your vault; measuring your net losses or gains. It's not that simple.
...Insights and possibilities for social transformation are often trapped by ego-related attitudes and claims regarding the ownership of truth... -Leela Fernandes, Transforming Feminist Practice
Translation: Believing your view of the room is the only legitimate one.
Vanity. No wonder it's one of the 7 deadly sins.
Feminist Vanity? Now we're REALLY talking destruction.
