Dangerous forms of dialogue
Destructive confrontations in meetings

Concerned groups frequently find themselves unable to translate the social conflicts in which they are involved into effective dialogues. By reducing complex situations to single issues, or in emotional and violent outbursts, or hysterical relating of issues to individual situations, the form and quality of the dialogue become inadequate and nothing is gained from the exercise. A first danger of dialogue is to rush into premature agreement, thus obscuring the differences that are the reason for the dialogue in the first place. Other dangers include: triumphalism, relativism and syncretism.
