This is such an interesting blog post about quite a mainstream topic in the media – division in society. Division has been presented as something we should avoid, something that prevents teamwork, unity and peace. But the truth is, we shouldn’t be so caught up about it because we are born with an inherent tendency towards being comfortable in specific groups. We shouldn’t fight this natural urge.

Everyone would just do the same things all of the time so society would get nowhere – technology wouldn’t be advancing at the rate it is now and we’d probably still be living in the stone age!

And third, you have to ask: Whose goals? Whose “normal”? Whose “unity”?

I never understood the lamenting of this division as a concept. People disagree vehemently over what to eat for lunch, and you’re shocked that we can’t agree on the big things?

Yes, the things that we should do in order to have a wonderful society are…
