520    In any social arrangement - especially in a nation as 
       large and diverse as the United States - the many 
       differences among people are all too obvious. We have 
       different capacities and resources, and we live with 
       vastly different circumstances and outcomes. Within such 
       splendid diversity, where shall we find a basis for unity?
       And what can equality possibly mean?  Racism has a long 
       and well-known history in the United States, and there 
       have been many struggles to overcome its legacy. Yet many 
       of the attempts to eliminate racism have been coercive, 
       producing a powerful conflict between equality and 
       liberty.  Ethnocentrism -- judging others as inferior 
       because of their culture, race, or religious background - 
       presents many of the same kind of problems as racism. A 
       nation of immigrants, such as the U.S., is particularly 
       challenged to accommodate a wide variety of ethnic and 
       cultural backgrounds, while seeking some common foundation
       for a sense of unity.  Sexism -- the view that a person's 
       sex overwhelmingly determines his or her social status - 
       joins racism and ethnocentrism as prototypes for many of 
       our most serious moral problems.  Among the more recent 
       problems associated with diversity are affirmative action 
       and multiculturalism. These are not only political issues;
       they also are philosophical disputes that touch our 
       understanding of ourselves as a nation.  The United States
       is simultaneously committed to liberty, justice, and 
       equality. But there is a clear and profound trade-off 
       between liberty and equality. What is the proper balance 
       between these conflicting ideals? And what processes and 
       institutions help us manage the trade-off? It's clear that
       a healthy society cannot diminish or suppress the 
       diversity (or difference) that is the source of so many 
       strengths. Yet a healthy nation also must be committed to 
       some common vision, which binds together what otherwise 
       can be a collection of angry and alienated factions. Our 
       task is to find unity in diversity -- e pluribus unum -- a
       motto that means "out of many, one."
