"Ultimately, politics is about difference, about managing conflicting interests and ideas."

Sounds like a pretty modern construct to me. Surely the idea was to exorcise disorder and impose order and harmony on society. The chaos of a free-for-all society is taken as given. The cure is not to 'manage conflicting interests' (which sounds really boring and tedious, and could lead to the wrong result anyway) but to impose an ideal uniformity. Might not be about 'politics', but does wonders for society!
