Society is always fighting against entropy. It takes a lot of energy to keep everything together. Sometimes you wonder how we're able to do it at all on such a scale. Of course what we do in order to keep it all together on such a scale is also part of our environmental issues, which can push people into conflict by itself, let alone with the added political and cultural reasons.

Diversity can also create that sort of conflict. Like with everything, there's an upside to diversity, and also a downside.
