On Unity

The opposition will not be united in ideology, they will be united in a goal. But to be united in a goal means to you need to organize and coordinate. That's what we really need, organization and discipline, not particularly unity. The unity that is implied asks us not to fight about little things. But we should always fight about the little things, this is our gift, pluralism and accepting the others. Why do we want to agree about everything? Do we want the same blind obedience?

We should agree to a goal and fight as little as possible till we reach it, but to see our differences as a sign of weakness is to ask for another monolithic entity that will most surely be exclusive of others. We ought to unite on a goal, and organize to achieve it, that's the only unity possible. Until then, all that remains are our differences unfortunately.
