Chaos to Community

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now… This may well be mankind’s last chance to choose between chaos or community.”

Martin Luther King, Jr

Chaos to Community

…we must enter emptiness, a process of silence, reflection and letting go… of releasing our need to heal and convert others to our view of the world if we are to ever leave destructive chaos to embrace community…

adapted from The Different Drum

M. Scott Peck

stages of community making
Stages of Community Making
  • Pseudocommunity
    • “faking it”-conflict avoidant-immediacy/pretense
  • Chaos
    • Efforts to heal & convert-open differences-fight for the norm(s) to prevail-tendency for (personal) attacks
  • Emptiness
    • “letting go” of feelings, assumptions, motives, control of outcome-lowering barriers to communication
  • Community
    • Authentic connection and concern-conflict resolving-differences are acknowledged and worked
post modern chaos
Post-Modern Chaos
  • NOT disorder, randomness and disarray but characterized by:
    • Underlying patterns that often require analysis to be revealed
    • Fractals, naturally occurring repetitions
    • Socio-technically, responses to status quo and prevailing power structure
the model
The Model
  • Divergence-convergence reflects orientation to issues
    • influenced by contact inside and outside one’s group
  • Presentation of the model is linear/progressive
    • as an ideal—not reality in practice
  • Process may be revealed in different ways
    • circular and multi-layered/individual or collective
  • Multiple “others” may be considered concurrently

the exercise
The Exercise
  • Think of a personal and international “me” and “not me” situation.
  • Consider how these situations are progressing (or not) in terms of the model.
  • Make one suggestion on how the situation could progress to reduce and/or change the conflict.
  • Share… and offer an example for the class…
