You over complicate the issue. There is no solution to the human problem. Even in antiquity, when populations were minimal and resources were abundant, people killed one other. Greed, jealousy, power, etc. will be temptors until the end of time. There is no escape from the course we are on. When the global population eclipses the affordable available resources there will an apocalyptic event. The Earth can only adequately sustain 10 billion breathers, we will be there in a jiffy. Developing nations will perish quickly as the cannibalize themselves. First world nations will just as quickly see their own lower class suffer a similar fate. Their middle classes will be in a life or death struggle for basic needs. The elite of the world will be exclusively presiding over a chaotic wasteland that rapidly deteriorates. From ashes, a new beginning will take place. A civilization will seemingly spring up from nowhere and recorded history will begin anew as the past is forgotten. Similar to what we refer to as Sumer, and Mesopotamia.

My points clearly went over your head. It's my own little way of describing the social dynamics at play in "supremacy", as far as I ever notice.

Sociologically speaking, racism is but a primal form of tribalism. Therefore any type of racial supremacy is but a form of tribalist supremacy. A list of the myriad of forms of human tribalism would be endless. Of my typical concerns are macro scale forms of tribalism / tribalist movements. Political movement = tribalist movement.

This may sound silly, to take the ugly face of racism and apply to other stuff, but look at the world. People gang stalk over football teams (hooliganism), people fight over race, genocides of class struggles (Tutsi's vs. Hutu's), and so on.

With religion, a lot of atheist's go as far as insisting that all wars were the results of religion (which is absolutely absurd).

Of course in the minds of atheist's, atheism isn't a religion. Neuropsychologically speaking, pretty much any kind of ideology can grow to take on the same kind of socio-cognitive effects as a religion.

To me blind faith and evangelism pretty much seal the deal on this.

Factor in intense infighting, HATE, and hyper-competitiveness and now we're in the territory of SUPREMACY. Look up the Spanish Inquisition and tell me that wasn't religious supremacy. Now consider the Cold War.

And now ponder American partisanship. Already 10 years ago it was a state of perpetual Democrat vs. Republican supremacy infighting. And now look at today; the election we just had; the riots; the beatings; the mass/murders; the screams for IMPEACHMENT before dude was even in office.

All tribalism; tribalist supremacy.

It truly is fascinating how obsessed people get over racial supremacy, while being completely in denial about all the rest.

While what is frightening is when political movements start converging all of these kinds of macro-social identities into hardened super-identities, when the blind rabid obsessionism humans tend to with any of them individually is already the catalyst for potential genocide.

Ontario Province Says Criticism Of Muslim Prayer In Public Schools ‘Racist’

Islam is a race now?

Like the "Aryan's" are a race?

(the Nazi Hyper-Tribalist political doctrine had Germanic peoples identify as the Aryan race; the Islamist Hyper-Tribalist political doctrine apparently has Arab's identify as Islamic).

I should have made this a while ago, but here it is now:



That was the best symbol I just happened to find searching around. The knot design is exactly what this super-identity mindset is all about. I was picturing some rounded side bits I could fit the words inside of, but didn't find a suitable one while this one has a tribalist art motif.

No inherent pun towards the Star of David. It could be done with a 5 sided, where party / political movement is implicitly the point of the center.
