The optimal word here is "honest". There will always be differences. Within the scope of Gandhi's here paradigm  ABSOLUTELY ! (the inalienable right of liberty, free thought, expression/speech, religion, etc.). In a broader observation of life, progress may only be in the eye of the beholder. Are today's communists honest  they seem to be, if nothing more than to themselves or in their own minds. Under that scenario, socialists (communists vs. fascist by example) demonstrate a great deal of honest differences but not to any healthy sign of progress. Is "honest" here related to absolute truth or just personal thought and/or theocratic desire? Current socialists must propagate lies (either outright, by ignorant fabrication or by not accepting / hearing the whole truth, etc.) to fulfill their "honest differences"  is that a sign of healthy progress?

To attempt to eliminate all differences between people is futile.
