Partial victories are important since they can be strengthened. Problems don't disappear when they are ignored. We are called to be active subjects. Reconciliation means discovering a new unity relativizing differences. As prejudice can be overcome as a stepping stone to the "event of understanding" (the fusion of horizons, Hans Georg Gadamer, Truth and Method), ignorance and poverty can be overcome through structural/systemic change. False diagnosis and false therapy are worthless and only lead to more injustice and concentration of wealth.
