Humanity has never been homogenous. With different races, religions, morals, and customs, humankind will never be able to have a single identical thought. From this issue, politics was derived in an attempt to handle and reconcile these opposing opinions to achieve a functioning society.

So, in an ever-changing and globalised society, amidst the savagery of modern politics, can we turn away from traditional political thought to achieve a supposed ‘united’ and ‘equal’ society, or is that just another unattainable notion existing in the human mind?
