Part of my new series about identity's many layers is best described by Amartya Sen in his book, Identity and Violence-The Illusion of Destiny.  He states, “The conceptual weakness of the attempt to achieve a singular understanding of the people of the world through civilizational partitioning not only works against our shared humanity, but also undermines the diverse identities we all have which do not place us against each other along one uniquely ridged line of segregation.  Misdescription and misconception can make the world more fragile than it need be.”
