Political Unity

In politics there is no unity without the sharing of a common purpose, a job to be done.

All other calls to unity are artificial because they lack agreement on the need to achieve a concrete goal in ways that are agreed upon.

Without unity of purpose, in unity there is only submission to the quietude of unity.
