We Must Stand United

For too long a question has plagued my mind, and I come to you all today, with that question, and a proposal; my dream for the future of humanity. A humankind that casts away the barriers that we have rigidly enforced for centuries; the cultural walls that continue to divide us, and have done so for millennia.

Why are we not yet united?

Since the dawn of recorded history mankind has fought one another; beginning with the nomadic tribes that our ancestors were. Over time, we developed religion and the concept of territory, and we waged righteous war to protect or expand ourselves ever since.

We should not be doing this.

My vision for humanity, the future I can see now, is of humanity undivided. Every race, religion, nationality, social, ethnic and cultural group, coming together and saying simply, “I am a human being”. But those four words are stronger than they appear. In these words we accept our differences and cast the discrimination aside.

I say, revere what sets us apart. I care not if you are Christian or Catholic, black or white, Arabic, Asian, Taoist, Muslim, Hindu, Shinto, Wiccan, Norse Reconstructionist, Australian Aborigine, Islander or any other racial or religious group. I only care that you are human beings.

Revere what sets us apart- but destroy that which drives us apart. Because those who seek to confuse and kill their would-be brothers and sisters for their differences are less than humans; mere beasts that should be put down for the greater good of our species.

Could you imagine a world with a united humankind? A world were German engineering maximises the potential of Japanese innovation? Where art, beauty, sexuality and technology can be freely explored, and the human experience made all the greater? But of course this is a utopian pipe dream… but I can dream; and dreams can be made reality.

In twenty short years we went from low-flying aircraft, to having a man walk on the moon that orbits our planet. Look at the way computers have advanced in the past ten years, let alone the past thirty. Our capability for intrepid discovery and advancement can only be matched by the ambition that drives us to these things.

I say we cast away the chains and barriers that have torn us apart and we embrace our differences with a single vision and purpose for humankind, driving ever onward into the shining future that could await a humanity who accept that peace and unity is the true path.

We need to stand together as a united human race. Because none of us, will ever be as strong as all of us.

    Now I guess the idea is a good one but I have way to many issues with a
    certain race of people to just go and embrace them. I also choke on the
    sorry word….BUT I do not go out and hurt them. I just live and let live.

      I’m not suggesting embracing. I’m suggesting tolerance. I know that there’s too much hate in the world for everyone to drop their bullshit and start cuddling ancient enemies, but is it too much to ask of people to at least put down the hate?

    I reside in a similar boat as Coral. I have misgivings about a few different races as per the general example they tend to display. I do not seek to hurt any of them in any way but I certainly do give ample space between myself and them. Mine is mostly mistrust instead of hate. there are individuals that I simply cannot stand, and they are dealt with accordingly.
