Following divisive elections in the UK and USA, and continued turmoil across the globe, a major coming together of mankind has occurred.
Simultaneously and without provocation, citizens from every corner of the world have all had the same thought that, ‘instead of all this division, recrimination and hate, it would be so much easier if people just came together… and did exactly what I wanted them to do’.
This universal belief, that the opinions of their fellow countrymen were bile and that their own beliefs were financially, ethically and
sexually practically superior, was held by literally everyone asked in NSN’s recent global polling.
White nationalist James McKee from Little Rock, Arkansas told us, ‘I just can’t stand division in this country. Now that the election’s over we all need to come together as Americans and realise that the real enemy here is the SJWs. And the Jews.’
This was a view both echoed and rebuffed by his compatriot Stephen Stewart, ‘Trump’s divisive campaign of hate and terror has ended and now they’re expecting us to unify behind a presidency built on hate and terror?! I just can’t do it… especially when it’s so obvious that now most of all we really need to unify to tackle that madman’s looming executive power. A power that I previously thought we had to unify in support of…’
Meanwhile in the UK, both sides of the Brexit debate called for nationwide unity to both ‘oppose’ and ‘support’ the upcoming Supreme Court decision depending on which way it fell.
Across the country newspapers, politicians and even regular citizens called for people to come together and agree that they had ‘more in common’, before going on to list a range of utterly conflicting demands for the future of Britain.This left both sides wondering in vain why the other had so rudely refused their offer of unity, when all they had wanted to do was take back control/ not undermine the country’s economic stability for decades to come.
