Boyd was perscriptive on this point, he advised a strategy that focuses on "gaining an appreciation for": self interests, critical differences of opinion, internal contradictions, frictions, and obsessions.

Further: "With respect to ourselves, live up to our ideals: eliminate those flaws in our system that create mistrust and discord while emphasizing those cultural traditions, experiences, and unfolding events that build-up harmony and trust. [That is, war is a time to fix these problems, not to delay or ignore them. As an open, democratic society, the United States should have enormous advantages in this area.]"
