As an outsider in this particular dynamic I have to say I am glad to see this sort of thing AND I hope those involved are fighting back for SHARED goals. Since I do not know the persons involved I do not know whether ostensibly shared goals are or are not a persona, a facade, for a drive to power.

The persons involved also may or may not be aware of which is which either. Power can become a higher and higher objective: as they seek more and more power for __________________, there is some tipping point in there where the critical mass necessary for ______________ change is all that it can be in the current circumstances and bargaining that away in the service of more opportunities for more power, supposedly to accomplish __________________ more perfectly, when, in fact, ________________, at this point given the circumstances, is no longer feasible without the use of (what was at one time) un-necessary force that violates the very nature of ________________________, thus making power a higher objective than ____________________.

It boils down to what exactly _____________________ is, what the factors are in the circumstances as they change, what exactly you're willing to sacrifice, including power, for _________________, and the individual actors' abilities to recognize any of this honestly. Without that recognition, we could have another "Invasion and Occupation of Iraq" on our hands, only this one will be occuring in our nations' hospitals and other care resources, or we will get "____________________" that isn't ______________________.
