Challenge

Could the challenge of an assembly session not be reformulated in terms of collective discovery of a set of complementary metaphors or images which best embody a more fruitful understanding of governance at this time?

Can the contemporary challenge of governance not be reformulated in terms of the development of appropriate images, metaphors or parables to embody the harmonies and discords between apparently competing policy insights?

In these strange times, can it not be argued that what is required is some kind of 'strategic keystone' to provide a comprehensible interface between the many competing strategic responses basic to the dilemmas of governance for the future?
