Hatred thrives in our nation.
Whether it's hatred towards Ajay, Pfeiffer, Oblige, Serbians etc., it's omnipresent within the community at the moment, and, while viewing the comments of my last article, I could definitely tell it is something that lives within America.
It's foolish to ignore this. We live in a community, that, while trying to work together, also offers enmity towards someone at any particular point in time. I think that one of the most concrete examples is with the Unity system.
Initially welcomed as the harbinger of destruction to the AFA by securing the CP seat, it has become something hated, something that is apparently controlled by trrbl elitists who would apparently like nothing more than to have complete dominance over the eUnited States.
What it has become has tarnished the word unity. We can no longer work towards unity, when Unity has become an election that people hate strongly and would like to see end. And that's not how we should act.
We should not attack other parties when they make a mistake, we should not attack other parties when they do "better" than us, or use "illegal methods". The Feds are not innocent (even I'm not), and nor are any other parties. Unless you're playing a different game...
Something that we should recognize is that the PTOers thrive off of our hate, the disagreements, strifes, problems that we have on a daily basis. We try to work together and accomplish Unity, but what we get is a jumble of those who want to do work desperately trying to make something great, or another group who sits and attacks what has been built.
Perhaps it's a foolish notion to consider American unity, I recognize that. Each clique has their own goals, their own motives in the little game that we call eRepublik. But, to be honest, we shouldn't let that define the way that we act towards the human beings that we play the game with. We aren't playing the game with another damn robot, people.
There is something about Unity that should draw people together, give them a chance to work within a system to accomplish something great. There is something about Unity that should be preventing the AFAers from taking over our nation.
However, what we fail to realize is that they're winning. Every time we attack someone else, treat them as sub-human or a mindless drone, we are letting them win. We are letting them tear apart America.
At the end of the day, it doesn't matter beyond retention who holds the chair. What matters is the community, and there's something about unity that is killing that very thing. And it needs to change.
So change it. Whether you're a future CP, a nobody, or somewhere in between, that does not mean you have to hate. We should be working together as team, as a unit, in unity.
