When communal or tribal bonds unite a group of people, great success is possible. But such bonding can only develop when personal interests are subjugated to goals incorporating the essential virtues of humanity. The broader the basis for action, the greater is the good that can be achieved. And the greater the potential good, the more powerful is the support behind it. A spirit of cooperation steadies the boat, but it does help to have a beautiful island to row toward!
Learn to respect the strength in diversity, for a community’s true power lies not in its numbers, but in the diverse skills and collective resources of its members. Just as the stoutest walls are reinforced with many different materials, so the strongest groups allow differences to coexist inside the whole.
With a unified group solidly behind you, even very difficult enterprises can be attempted without great risk.
