We’re all in this together

There appears to be two prevailing worldviews dominating American political discourse today; one group holds an “Us versus them” worldview, and the other is “We’re all in this together, so we need to work it out.”

The first worldview, us vs. “them”, is driven by fear. Whenever this view has been implemented as policy, is has led directly to conflict and war.

The other worldview, that we’re all in this together, leads to peace and prosperity. It doesn’t ignore the fact that there are differences between groups of people, but rather, as Sargent Shriver said long ago;

Peace requires the simple but powerful recognition that what we have in common as human beings is more important and crucial than what divides us.

This site is a great reflexion of valuing community over self, and the desire to work with one-another towards shared values and goals.
