When Unity Leads To Chauvinism

566.02Question: What is the principle of brotherhood?

Answer: Compliance with this principle provides us with the most comfortable state. If we think about each other, support each other, and everyone cares about each other, then none of us can feel bad.

Comment: It is said that excessive unity leads to racism, chauvinism, fundamentalism, and religious fanaticism.

My Response: No. This happens if I take a group of people and start treating them with increased care because we have a certain goal directed against others. Against others!

We begin to feel like special individuals. It’s an egoistic feeling that gives us strength. And here, of course, we go beyond the scope. But this is no longer simple egoism, but chauvinism.

Question: So it is not contrary to our egoistic nature to unite against someone?

Answer: Yes. In that case, I just need partners. I find them, we take care of each other, we are a strong, close-knit team, and we just overpower everyone else.

Question: Maybe we can come up with something so that all earthlings will rally against someone, for example, against aliens? As if we are in some kind of danger. And then all the earthlings would be united.

Answer: Every country comes up with some kind of opponent. And this really unites the people. This is used by politicians. Why are all developed countries often at opposition? This helps them to be united, mobilizes people, resources, and shows additional strength in the masses.
