Realistically, I could see segregation of ideals occurring on separate planets, but not likely the kind of segregation you're referring to. For one, I
feel our racial combinations would be too mixed by the time we have a bunch of planets to hop on to. Secondly, I couldn't see like, a religious planet
forming so much by the time we conquer technology to the level of planet colonization due to religion phasing out over time.
Taking your scenario into consideration from the way you word it however, would we segregate? Possibly, but unlikely.
We segregate fairly racially by neighborhoods and small community areas now, but not on larger scales. If people really wanted to segregate from each
other racially and en masse, they would do that. We would have entire cities or states that were predominately different racial ethnicities on
purpose. We don't do that though because enough of us either prefer integration or simply don't make such things a priority.
As strong as the anger depiction of racism, sexism and all the other isms are on the internet today, I don't actually know that many people in any of
the camps that are crying out for segregation. Most women I know WANT men around (just put vice versas in all the considerations).
Most Caucasian people I know have no issue living near people of other skin colors or nationalities and if they do, it's usually pretty specific
individuals. From what I've seen, racial tensions increase with the size of the city. Big cities are the most tolerant in general with the tensions
between specific races/cultures much stronger. (Puerto Ricans vs. Mexicans for example) Small towns seem to have the least tolerance and fewer
variations to have problems with. Moderately sized cities seem to live more harmoniously in general than either. I can't see these values changing
much if we were given planetary options rather than regional. If segregation would fix our problems, we simply wouldn't be integrating the way we are
But say they did anyway and we had segregated planets. While those on the planets might live more harmoniously amongst each other (And it's important
to say "at first", because it's only a matter of time before opposing viewpoints emerge from later generations within the societies) , planetary wars
are inevitable as clashes would most certainly occur. Humans don't do well with not having access to something other humans have. So, if for example,
Planet Girl Power suddenly gets a valuable resource that Planet Brodawg desires, then it's Pew-pew-pew!!!
You say to pretend that human greed isn't a factor, but that's just separating too far from humanity, going all the way back to Og has rock Thag want.
Thag take rock.
Segregation between planets would most likely center around political and ethical ideologies rather than the camps we see fighting it out on the
internet daily. Oh, and science-based planets would ALWAYS win out over time.
