Is difference only justified if it's totally independent of anything identical?

@Thomas33,
You need to make your question clearer. Maybe, you can provide an example of what you mean.

@cicerone imposter,
Elections are about difference, but are impossible without reflection.
Because difference and reflection can't exist without having competing interests, is it error for reflection to be at the expense of difference?


Take American or French culture for example: both need uniformity, yet Americans and French people can both be about the study of sociology - can either American or French culture exist if predicated on sociology?

@Thomas33,
Doesn't that already happen at the United Nations and multi-lateral trade?

@cicerone imposter,
The UN being about sociology? The UN is definitely a different function than a nation, but there is still a dynamic of uniformity for the benefit of difference.

To look at it from a different angle..
The sociological essay on culture is because of culture, yet is not in the interest of culture - shouldn't a cause be only that which produces self-support, or at least not anti-self?
