UNIVERSAL UNITY IS UNATTAINABLE, PARTIAL UNITY IS ENOUGH.
An automobile with eight cylinders outperforms an automobile with four similarly sized cylinders, but four or eight cylinders shall get you to your destination. It is only a matter of time of arrival. Eight gets you there faster than four. Eight cylinders firing asynchronously – disunity – same as stationary. Six out of eight cylinders firing synchronously shall outperform a four-cylinder automobile in a race.
Do you need to drop out of a race when your eight-cylinder automobile, has six cylinders firing synchronously; fix your two recalcitrant cylinders, and rejoin the race, when the competition only has four cylinders? No, unity of six cylinders shall outperform unity of four cylinders. Diverse nations have many cylinders. Each cylinder representing different interests such as race, color, politics, religion, occupation, and sexual orientation. Cylinders with same interests aggregate into an automobile bent on winning the political race for their interests or party.
All interests – four or eight cylinders – firing synchronously is the desire of every driver in a race. US democracy, really majoritocracy, is a race of cylinders, the right – old left – has eight cylinders and the left – old right – has four cylinders. All the cylinders on the left- Trumpists – are firing, and some of the cylinders on the right – Americans – are quiescent. Six cylinders firing synchronously on the right enough to win the race.
If unity means having all twelve cylinders in one automobile, there is no way, the Biden-Harris Administration can accomplish anything. The four Trumpian cylinders are running in a different race. Better to let the left run their race of hate and racism disguised as conservatism in their four cylinder automobile. They are bent on winning with less powerful automobiles, hence their attempts to win the race by attacking the race officials – sack Congress. They do not believe in a fair race, neither do they want to run in the same race.
President Joe Biden, you can win this race without recruiting any cylinders from the left. You can win more decisively by recruiting the quiescent cylinders on the right or a few cylinders from the left to advance your programs. Waiting to have a 12-cylinder automobile for this four-year long race is akin to committing political hara-kiri because you cannot unite oil and water. When oil and water unite in an automobile, the result is engine knock!
