Unity and civility are sometimes mistaken for peace. They aren’t. Unity is just agreement and civility is just being polite. It is easy to unite around violence and to defer to politeness and decorum in service to sadistic ends. It’s harder to live in peace and recognize the dignity in our common humanity.
