Unity and Uniformity

 Lessons from World History is a book Will Durant wrote after completing his 10 Volume History of Civilization. One of the major lessons he learned was that freedom and equality do not go together. If we want absolute equality, we must forego freedom. If we want freedom, we must forego absolute equality.

Therefore, equality in justice in the eyes of the law must be protected in a free society.

The other absolute equality is in a spiritual sense, in the spiritual realm. If we can do this and identify ourselves with all lives and all peoples, we do not have to be fighting for personal identity, social identity, racial identity etc.,

That is why Kanchi Periyaval, a modern-day saint said that we should not insist on uniformity in appearance, language etc, but in the unity of our "hearts".
