Why diversity doesn't work...

A passenger boarded a flight, only to discover that she was allocated a seat beside someone who had political views that were different to hers. 

Feeling virtuous, she went into a full blown rant and demanded that the passenger be moved to another seat.  It didn't help her mood, when the airline crew pointed out that this wasn't something that she could demand.  After a deterioration in her behaviour, the woman was removed from the flight.

Wouldn't life be simple if anyone we didn't agree with, could be moved...from the seat beside you, from the office or just out of your life?  

Wouldn't that be great?

But, would it?  Imagine what life would be like if you spent all day living, working and talking to people who are just like you?  Imagine just talking to people who hold exactly the same opinions as you?
