Unity means a lot of things to different people operating in different circumstances. Among people of different backgrounds or beliefs, Unity means that they are reaching beyond their normal lives to act as one. The political system in the USofA is based on the idea that entire political systems are stronger when they come together to form a larger unity. Unity in writing, however, is a bit more subtle. It describes that which ties everything together into one whole so that it can be digested by the human mind. It doesn’t have to agree with itself completely, but when it works well the conflicts can be understood easily.
