"Can't We All Just Get Along?" - Rodney King
Division brings chaos and disorder. It divides families, friends, neighbors and nations.
The three greatest divides that have caused the most amount of harm to all human beings, HaShem's created beings, has been religion, politics and the cloistered tribal mentality. Each of these have been responsible for more wars, jihads and in-fighting than any other thing on the planet.
You might think that after millenia we humans would have figured this out by now but perhaps my scientific hero (Albert Einstein) was correct - doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result is the pure definition of insanity.
It leads one to surmise that the most insane people in the world just may well be the religious, the political and the tribal mentality.
Perhaps John Lennon had it correct all along - just "Imagine."
