We find ourselves in the desert - we come upon a scene - an individual lying on the ground in the blazing sun and heat - this individual is dying of thirst.
Another individual passing by - notices the person dying of thirst and rushes over to offer water and help/aid.
The dying individual asks this person who is offering help:
Are you a man or a woman I can not see you clearly - what color is your skin - do you believe in god - what is your sexual preference - did you vote in the last election - who did you vote for?
The person offering water and aid answers these questions.
The dying individual then refuses the water and aid - saying - I can not take your water or aid as you are not like me.
Do differences really make sense as a reason to turn down aid?
Do differences really make sense as a reason to deny aid?
Do differences really make sense as a reason not to unite in common cause?
Fossil fuel subsidies and pollution
Conflict of interest
Free trade that undercuts domestic business
White collar crime that crashes the economy of the world
For profit health care that denies treatment
For profit insurance that denies coverage
For profit education that denies access
The above are just some items of common cause - the resolution of which can be beneficial to all - like clean water is beneficial to all life.
