We regularly hear Justin Trudeau talk about how “diversity is strength.” However, it’s interesting to note how that concept is never applied to the idea of countries. After all, the diversity of nations in the world allows countries to try different things, live by different values, and avoids the kind of creepy, centralized “sameness” that is so destructive of creativity and innovation. Democracy also depends on the fact that the world consists of different nations. A key component of democracy is that the people have the ability to influence the direction of their nation through voting. In short, we control the destiny of our country by voting for who we wish to lead the country.
