I know this is a long shot, but I am looking for a quote from Rousseau. I heard it a long time ago and have looked for it many times, but I have not been able to find it.
In the quote (only about 1-to-3 sentences long, going by memory), Rousseau mentions that although it may seem people are very divided politically, it's only because our attention is directed towards areas where we disagree. He mentions that humans are in agreement in the vast majority of political issues, but because we agree on these issues, there is not much to discuss, and what remains to discuss are things we disagree on. So it always appears like we are divided.
Does anyone know what quote from Rousseau discusses this?
