It is easy for me to be an arm chair philosopher and speak as though I really am experiencing a crisis, but I really dont know how to go ahead and change the world as I see it.
What can change this situation and to a certain extent quell the unrest is if people are integrated into a society they feel they belong to and have an identity beyond region or religion or caste and in some cases even gender.
What do you do when what you perceive as your identity is threatened? You either morph to reinvent yourself according to the threat, or you hold on to your identity and fight tooth and nail for it or you just become faceless.I feel a lot of conflict, regional and religious stems from a few factions trying to take advantage of perceived threats to identity. At the end of the day, all of us have evolved so much over decades and centuries that a lot of the identities are irrelevant. But because we have never thought of ourselves beyond the identity, we try very hard to stick to it and react violently to anyone that tries to question it.
