Unity Empty
PostSubject: Unity   Unity EmptyTue Dec 07, 2010 3:29 pm

Here is what I've started for unity. As it is probably the biggest argument I would appreciate it if you all would tell me more things to add.

Brief Against Unity

Cross X questions

Is unity uniformity?

Can people be united against popular sovereignty?

Can a government founded on individual rights be united?

Can a country always be completely united?
So would you say that the whole concept of unity is unreal?

Should we value unity over everything else?

Your value is unity, correct? and in order for a government to be legitimate it must be united, correct? If a government is not unified (and illegitimate according to you) is it necessary for the government to remove the cause?

If you ever come across the Revolutionary War argument, ask if the American colonies were always united. They weren’t.

Can an individual be strong?

The United States weren’t always united yet they defeated the greatest military power on earth.
Samson was one yet he defeated the united philistines.

America has believed that in differentiation, not in uniformity, lies the path of progress. It acted on this belief; it has advanced human happiness, and it has prospered.
-Louis D. Brandeis (Justice on the US Supreme Court)

Nathan, as you asked, here is a suggestion. Find a quote that supports your stance. Just enter unity quotes on google and you will find a mix of positive and negative quotes. Its surprisingly easy to find one or two really good quotes against a topic.
