Are you Democrat or Republican? Are you on the Left or Right? Are you in my caste, or not?
The saying “divide and conquer” is absolutely correct. Split us into groups, and we will fight amongst ourselves, ignoring that we are conquered by those who keep those divisions alive.
And so it is that our infrastructure is privatised, our air is polluted, our genes are patented, and our defences ruled ‘illegal’ whilst we fight about if they should be painted blue or red.
The issues which divide are a pathetically small in comparison to the challenges which unite us.
