It doesn’t matter the situation… political, religious or otherwise. When someone is pushing a separatist agenda (Us vs. Them) it’s the most immediate way to amass personal power. When people speak of inclusion they will have a longer, more profound impact.
Ultimately separatists end up alone and hated, mainly because people (even their followers) truly mean nothing to them. The ones who embrace togetherness endure. Their legacy is magnified throughout the years.
