Unity versus Equality

We as humans have the greatest potential for diversity because of our variance of culture, race, gender roles, physiology, personality and our free will to name a few. Saying that, us humans also show the greatest potential for segregative thinking and conflict based on these exact variances. So the question becomes not one of equality, which denotes either acceptance based on a specific criteria or an exclusion because of the held notions of superiority. But becomes a question of ‘unity in diversity’ or ‘harmony in conflict’. Both of which automatically denotes parts that make up a whole, a system coordinating different aspects and unity obtained by peaceful means.

Is it so hard to drop the ego aspect of our natures, to be proud of our cultural heritage as well as being proud to be a member of our diverse species? Without the need to snuff out the light of a specific species group whom different in appearance are essentially the same? Life itself and this experience we call reality or existence operates like a machine, we as individuals and collectives are just the components performing different tasks, reflected by our true and untainted nature. Performing our duties as programmed by the creator. So your problem cannot be with me, a mere product, it must be with a progenitor regardless of what form they appear in.

It’s easy to segregate – how often have we used the divide and conquer method after all. I think it’s harder to be open and inclusive but not impossible. When you have more people you have more thoughts and ideas. Even within the same race of gender you’ll find so many variables. As long as there is an underlying respect and tolerance, diversity is something to be explored and celebrated, not ignored.
