Unity

Are we united?
Must we agree to be one?
Is debate allowed?

While thinking of unity and partisan division, one important question is how much diversity is allowed within a group. Is it possible to be united, yet seem to disagree on almost everything, conversely how do you establish which points the group has in common, and which points are unimportant. Much division comes from the debate of whether or not agreeing to something is important. Even if we were able to step away from politics, we would have some difficulty establishing common ground. Perhaps, though, in this world we need to establish the common ground that we believe that disagreement does not have to be hostile.
