Unity in Diversity: Foundation of Resilience
Resilience requires unity in diversity, starting with the unity of male and female, whence all other forms of unity in all other dimensions of diversity derive. So much human agency is wasted in fabricating and enforcing differences and hierarchies of domination. We would do well to spend more time and energy actualizing the natural unity of man and woman, and the natural unity of humanity and the ecosphere. Such unity in diversity is the foundation of resilience and the best hope to survive the ecological crisis, which is primarily a crisis of the human spirit (cf. Rex Weyler, The Jesus Sayings, 2008, p.325).
