  • Rivals Change Sides In Debate | Aria Group
    express the other person s thoughts Mr Givens jumped at the chance and chose Mr Williams to trade with He was there as commander of the 5th Brigade South Carolina Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans but had on his side the intellectual articulate background of a group discussion leader of the League of the South which is actively working toward another secession I did understand his views he said I just didn t agree with them I could feel his anger I could feel his outrage I thought I could express that in spite of the fact that I believed then and I believe now that they are misdirected toward the flag on the Statehouse Mr Williams who can address a crowd in revival tones or indignation when he chooses was less sure When I was asked to do that my first thought was I can t I don t have the ability to express something I know is wrong Then I thought Hell if he s brave enough to put himself in my shoes I ll put myself in his I found it very difficult though I could understand his love for his great great grandfather but I couldn t feel comfortable that it justified his feelings about that flag Even trying to be him I couldn t say that easily Both men believed they had information that diminished the other s views too But both initially believed the experience was a good one and each impressed the other In fact a prevalent feeling among participants and audience members that day appeared to be that the flag dispute could be resolved if the state could only be broken into groups of 20 people committed to trying to understand each other better Facilitator Jay Rothman whose doctorate is in international relations came to the table with an array of credentials including mediation between Israelis and Palestinians in Israel and involvement in peacemaking efforts in Cyprus Sri Lanka Northern Ireland and South Africa The consulting organization he directs the ARIA Group based in Yellow Springs Ohio because it s his hometown operates on his theory that conflict can be an opportunity a creative force rather than a divisive destructive one It s a musical metaphor but the acronym stands for antagonism resonance invention and action What Dr Rothman does usually in private rather than with an audience including the press is allow people to express their antagonism look for common ground invent possible solutions and carry them out Despite the name the goal of conflict resolution is not necessarily to end conflict but to use it in a positive way to work together for change The South Carolina dispute was a challenge few people around the table that day were willing even to consider compromise And the daylong event an abbreviated version of the ARIA process was actually a training exercise for professionals in the field of conflict resolution with no forum for implementing the recommendations that came from
