The world seems to run on this fallacy: that we will all be happier, more peaceful, and more safe if everyone conformed. Where there is lack of conformity of beliefs, ideas, or actions, we press people to be more like us.
Think about how much energy we waste trying to get each other to behave–or how much we waste trying to resist each other’s attempts to box us in. Think about how dead it would be if everyone was the same in all the ways.
Everyone is Everyone is so much more profitable, sustainable, happy, and so much less worrisome than Everyone is the Same.
