http://www.humanemyth.org/advancedadv... - In the third segment of this inspiring four-part talk, award-winning filmmaker and activist James LaVeck describes five distinct stages of moral development, starting with consensus (herd) consciousness and ending with the spiritual transcendence of great moral leaders such as Gandhi. 

FIVE REVOLUTIONS OF THE WHEEL OF CONSCIENCE

1st turn of the wheel: Consensus Consciousness
Leading characteristic: Conformity

2nd turn of the wheel: Passive Nonviolence
Leading characteristic: Non-participation in, and non-cooperation with, violence and exploitation. Focus on private behaviors. "Not because of me"

3rd turn of the wheel: Active Nonviolence
Leading characteristic: Prevention and intervening to stop violence. Focus on public role.
"I cannot stand by and do nothing. I must do what I can to intervene as well as prevent future violence."

4th turn of the wheel: Visionary Leadership
Leading characteristic: Transparent, values-centered action. Understanding that the means are the end. Focus on safeguarding the integrity of the process and the vision for long term change. "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." --Gandhi

5th turn of the wheel: Spiritual Transcendence
Leading characteristic: Embodiment of the principles of the cause in all areas of life, including one's internal life. Focus on creative re-interpretation of the principles of the cause. Ability to take individual actions, and to inspire others, at a level that can change the course of history.
