If truly none of those divisions trigger you, then we are off to a good start. If you can think of any others, please do add to the comments, but be aware I won’t be updating the list.
Because they are academic.
All of those, and an infinity of others we can imagine, are already all dead in the water, one way or another.
The Long Standing Problem
Every one of those differences is driven by exactly the same simple thing;
Scarcity of resources.
As that becomes more and more acute, so also the list of divisions and “Tribes” grows, with every category now splitting into ever more specialist, petty disputes.
We fight amongst one another for a share of ever dwindling wealth.
It does not matter whether or not government controls the wealth, rationing it out to individuals, or if corporate entities have it, dangling it like a carrot for the more enterprising or unscrupulous individuals to rip a piece off for themselves.
The same problem of increasing scarcity of resources / wealth persists, becoming ever more acute either way, because currently, those resources are obtained from irreplaceable planetary reserves, which in turn can only be exploited by generating more and more toxic waste.
And all the while our population increases.
Our planet is no longer an oasis of plenty.
If we continue digging and polluting then we destroy it, together with all humanity, including all divisions, and all tribes.
The only way we can avert that certainty, is to plug into the original source of planetary reserves, our sun, without further delay.
To do it in a way that truly replaces planetary reserves, we need an alliance of all humans.
With the source of infinite wealth enabled, there is no longer any shortage of resources.
So again, all divisions cease to exist.
Humanity can only live on as one tribe, Tribe Humanity.
All other tribes, and all divisions are dead in the water.
All arguments are null and void.
Not worth wasting another minute of our time on, not a single one of them.
All are useless distractions from the real issue.
It is time to invoke Tribe Humanity.
