Conflict of Perspective

Many people worry about eliminating conflicts of interest in government officials. I worry more about reducing their conflicts in perspective.

While our interests can change easily from this to that depending on the particulars of the situation, once we see something from a new perspective, there is no going back.

Conflicts grow in beds of narrow self interest. A new perspective will trump a conflict of interest every time.
