Why do people seperate them selves? They put themselves in little groups, race-wise, religion-wise, politically-wise, ect...

Why can't people unite, work for the betterment of society, mankind(womankind too), instead of for personal gain.

Believe it or not, everybody, and I mean everybody, works for their own personal comfort, not many sacrifice for society, or mankind.

the alternative is that we'd all have to believe the same thing, have the same values, aims, etc. and that isn't likely to happen.

Initially, we were separated by geography, and being isolated, we developed different ideas and cultures.

However, I believe that the majority of us get along with each other and indeed, even become friends. Heck, in the office next to me, is a good friend of mine, and an ex-Isrealli Intelligence officer...down the hall, is another friend, a muslim from Iran. Mixed around the office, are African Americans, Oriental, etc. We all get along fine, and my gut feeling is that this is more the norm, than the exception...

When we work together in close proximity as Gazrok says he does its not a problem, people have the chance to know each other properly and respond well, the problems arise as we see with North Korea recently when Bush makes an ill advised comment about an axis of evil and the N koreans take offense at this and become more aggressive. Its the governements and religions that get in the way, if we could get rid of these I reckon we`d all be a bit more like gazroks place.
