Focusing on the differences between us is what creates division itself

There’s a narrative at work in the UK today that has slowly but surely been tearing British culture apart. It has been giving just about every one of us an identity crisis, as we try to fathom out the question of whether or not we should feel guilty for simply being the people that we really are and should be proud to be. There is a self-serving and self-propagating process at work. It is as rotten as it is dishonest right to its very core.

However, there is a rather large elephant that sits in this room with the sign on the door marked ‘Social Justice, Diversity, Wokeness, Political Correctness et al.

It’s the reality that whenever any of us focus on any one of the many difference between any one of us, we are highlighting or amplifying that difference. And that by doing so, in highlighting that difference – in whatever the form it might be, we create new divisions or extend existing divisions between us or between other members of society as we do.

We are all different to each other. Whether those differences are physical or just in the way that we think.

The damage that woke thinking and political correctness is doing only fails to be evident, because the success of this subversive culture is less than surface deep and championed only by laziness and sleepwalking groupthink.
