In this segment we explore how most individuals spend a lot of time laying blame or judging a particular situation rather than creating a productive dialogue to resolve the issue.

Why are people fixated in the 'who is right and who is wrong' dialogue? Neither side will admit they are 'wrong' simply because in their eyes they are simply responding to the other's aggression. As a witness to the news report of the civilian deaths, it's easy to be drawn into the 'right' vs. 'wrong' argument and through that process make peace within that the aggressor will be subjected to a higher justice.
