Unity can be achieved only above, against the differences

Question from the internet:

“In this time of absolute uncertainty, what are some of the easiest/most efficient ways to come together as a nation?”

There is no easy way, but there is a way.

There is no easy way as we are all inherently egocentric, self-justifying, and fiercely, proudly individualistic. And when we unite in groups, parties, movements, we usually unite against others, or to elevate ourselves above others.

And our differences will not disappear but grow, and we cannot either suppress or erase our differences.

As America has shown most countries — where there is still a certain level of free choice — will also split between two mainstream ideologies that hate and want to destroy each other, which will be complicated by the various cultural, social, religious differences in modern societies.

So we will never be able to come together, unite directly, while we also never be able to convince, defeat the “other side”.

Thus after we accepted, recognized this — hopefully before violent conflicts, bloodshed — then through a unique, purposeful, and practical educational method we can learn how to unite and work mutually together above and against the remaining, growing differences.

That is the true meaning of peace, complete opposites complementing each other above their differences towards a higher, common, mutual goal, purpose — which at first means survival. Later when the collective survival is safeguarded through this fragile unity then we will reveal much greater, higher mutual goals, purposes that will further strengthen the unity.
