i beg to differ

If everybody loves Star Wars,
Then who's going to obsess over LOTR?

OK. Bad metaphore.

What i'm tryna say is that, differences make the world so much more interesting.

If everybody thinks alike, where's the fun in that?

Nothing will be unique and there wont be any variation in anything.

There wont be Facebook, Myspace and Friendster to pick from.
There wont be One Utama, The Curve, Pavilion, MidValley and three dozen other malls to shop from.
There wont be supporters of Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea or Man U.
There wont be AirAsia which is a lot cheaper and a lot less comfortable than MAS.
There wont be Mahathir and Pak Lah and Anwar Ibrahim and Barack Obama. There wont even be any leader if everyone is the same.
There wont be anything to choose from.

Thats the beauty of differences.

And even though there are a few downsides to this, like:
-People misunderstanding other people's blogs and think that it is dedicated to them when its not.
-Stupid debates in the parliament which ends up with the ministers calling each other 'Babi' and 'Bodoh'.
-Couples berargue di mamak dengan penuh semangat over Dasar Ekonomi Baru.

when it comes to the bottom of it,
none of these things really matter. It doesnt.
Differences is merely a stepping stone to a more heated conversation.

And though sometimes it ends up hurting people, if we can just look past it, we'll see that we're all standing in the same place, looking at the same direction.

And if you cant see that, than i guess you're just different than i am.
