Ukraine, Syria, South Sudan, Venezuela, Iraq, Egypt — all divided by deadly violence resulting from dissatisfaction with government.
Scotland and Catalonia — two most prominent sub national regions conducting succession referendums based on dissatisfaction with government.
Walonia, Basque, Quebec, Tibet, — most well known regions with active separatist movements.
Colorado & California — states with recent or proposed referendums to separate counties and form new states.
Near record levels of individual and corporate migrations based less on seeking economic opportunity than on fleeing government regimes (albeit often for tax purposes).
Low approval ratings, frequent electoral discord and acrimonious debate regarding government policy in almost every nation with even minimal allowances for it (and violent protest where it is not allowed).
So what is it about government which ignites such passions and what can government employees and their leaders do to promote unity, or should we instead focus on supporting nonviolent diversity, including diversity of thought which is highly endangered in overly PC western democracies?
