As an example, the Becoming Variations...
Commitment vs. Responsibility.
Dram defines Commitment as seeing something through regardless of the consequences.
It defines Responsibility as assuming exclusive control over something.
I can't see how these two are related. I understand what they mean, and I love the interplay between them as an issue (the story I'm writing has these as the RS Issue)... but despite loving this particular pairing, I don't fully get what's going on between them that places them in dynamic opposition to one another.
Rationalization vs. Obligation.
Rationalization is masking the truth with alternative explanations, sort of like diversion/distraction/dishonesty.
Obligation is taking on some burden in exchange for someone's favor(s).
Here, again, I'm confused about how these Variations relate to each other... what is the specific "dynamic" that is going on between them?
