Read "Snuff" by Sir Terry Pratchett and it will teach you a thing or two.

Racism begins when people say : "But it's only an animal."

Someone has brought forth the theory that -

- genetic evolution has been replaced b social evolution.

All humans are all combativble in terms of body on this world -

- but you will find that they are incompatible in culture instead.

A person from South Amrica will find it very hard to marry a person from deeply within Africa, or from Japan, for example. The bodies are still very much compatible with one another - yet the cultures are what might give their marriages a hard time. A REALLY hard time.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
