"Because we are a nation which is so diverse and can only function peacefully as a melting pot, meaning that our differences have to blend rather than form barriers which polarize and divide: We must have a common philosophy..." Black Lives Matter: The Citizenship Ideal.
PURPOSE AND SIGNIFICANCE
On the subject of purpose, The Tao of Public Service says:
Every person, place or thing has a purpose. In every form of life, for every event, there is an essential idea...The highest and best part of each one of us is an essential idea that must be properly stimulated in order to grow. We are born into this world to do and act in a certain way. We actually have a cosmic and universal right to "be ourselves" and to engage in certain work...
Every person has an inherent purpose. It is a seed. The needs of purpose can only be met by a right to develop it.
