Our commitment to change must first come from within. We must develop the ability of self-reflection, without becoming overwhelmed with self-doubt, arrogance, or dependence on subjective normative logic. These and other steps can aid in making healthy social change for those existing within interdependent systems.
Fear not the past for it helps makes up who we are today and how well we are ready for the future. For such change to be lasting and nuturing the individuals, leaders, scientist and social alchemist must accept that their perceptions and actions may influence other interdependent systems that they actively or passively interact with regularly. For example US trade can influence global markets, which in turn impacts US domestic growth.
While this example may seem like matter of primary economic policy, its impact influences both individual and social groups. Both can have their perception of self and society altered by social change.
