If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear.
– Gene Roddenberry
Our little planet is defined by its diversity. There is beauty to be found everywhere, for those willing to see it. There is so much variety: the land, the flora, the fauna, that one single being can never truly know all that there is to find on this amazing planet. The one thing we can be sure of, is that no two things are truly the same. So why is it reasonable to expect humanity, which itself is follows this pattern of diversity, to become a static, homogenous species?
PAX Nation is about change, yes, but not about sameness. Instead it is an attempt to embrace the wonderful diversity that makes up our world. Sometimes this will require change, and this community is devoted to that. But sometimes it just requires understanding. That too is what this nation is all about. So here we offer a first forum to explore the variety that is our world, the great wonder that will be PAX Nation. Here we hope to share pictures of the beauty that is everywhere, whether just the natural beauty that is already there, or the wonders that mankind has added. Here also we hope to share the grand diversity of human thought and culture. Here we can share about our different customs, and learn about our brothers and sisters. Ask questions. Share pictures and videos. Explore what others have already shared. See all that our wonderful world has to offer, and learn.
