Let Us All Unite!

Dear Friends, Brothers and Sisters,

Unity is not a word we should take lightly, we have to be united and stay united despite all the differences among us. If you look around you all you see is division, everyone wants to stay divided and belong to a certain sanction. It does not matter what race you belong too even than you are divided, you probably belong to a smaller sanction of the race that comes come certain part of the world. Even in the same religion you are divided, many different types of the same religion.. huh?

Sports fans are divided too, you can call yourself a Manchester "United" fan and you say the game of football it's all for fun... but without realizing you have already disliked all the other football clubs and their fans out there. Rival fans fight on the streets after matches and they talk shit about each other on facebook all day... ain't the game of football suppose to bring us all together?

Music fans are divided, you probably belong to a certain genre.. hip hop? rock? Punk? Pop? Trance? Funk? Electro? Dubstep? "Full List of Genres".
The list of divisions and sanctions goes on... but this post is about Unity ;)

It is time to let our differences go, it is time to unite, we have gone on this wrong path way too long, starting today you have to prove to yourself that you are UNITED with the world. Go find someone you feel most disconnected from or someone you feel is the total opposite of yourself and go and find all the similarities between you.. as you will see there is much more similarities than differences. You have to realize who is actually separating us, who is actually dividing us.. it is from those people you should stay away from... "We are ONE" so People of the world it is time for us to Unite, as the saying goes " United we stand, divided we fall".

Ill leave you with this great advice from Charlie Chaplin on unity...

"I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate; has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood, for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say "Do not despair". The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish. Soldiers: don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate, only the unloved hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers: don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty. In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written: "The kingdom of God is within man" Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men; in you, you the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy let us use that power, let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future, and old aged security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie. They do not fulfill that promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfill that promise. Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness. Soldiers! In the name of democracy, let us all unite!"
