What Unity Means To Some People

From Vox Day:

...and it's interesting to see how a desire to unite was the "progressive" vision of Napoleon Bonaparte. It was the vision of Benito Mussolini. It was the vision of Vladimir Lenin. It was the vision of Adolf Hitler. It is the vision of the bureaucrats in Brussels and it is the vision of Barrack Obama. The desire "to unite and heal" is nothing more than the desire to control and dictate.

This certainly did cause me to pause and think about the conversations that I have had about unity. I find, often, the very people speaking about unity are the ones who are separating themselves out and insisting on division, which doesn't make any sense if you want unity. Unfortunately, Vox presents a very plausible motivation for those actions.
