Personal Identity Creates Community And Conflict.

For better or worse, we are social creatures that innately create groups of people like us. Whether it’s race, nationalism, gender, sex, ethnicity, economic class, sexual preference, religion, culture, age, sub-culture, political identity, philosophical identity, geographic identity, etc., we all tend to find value in our own (shared) identity. It tells us who we are and who’s like us. Unfortunately, it can create the struggles that define us. It takes great effort and thought to either reach past these identities or decide that they do not define us.
