Nationalism separates human-beings into the false mythic categories of nation states. This illusion is set in place through the use of deliberately conflating differences in language and culture with perceived differences in physical appearance. Once physical differences are inalienably linked with culture, the ground-work for racism is established. Instead of acknowledging that distinct human populations are the product of diverse manifestations of adaptability within different climatic and geographical conditions, the myth is perpetuated that the ‘differences’ are in fact directly related to skin-colour. Human groupings are then encouraged by an exploitative socio-economic system to perpetually conflict with one another to see which racial grouping is ‘superior’. Of course, the real point of this is to prevent human groupings from coming together and over-throwing the exploitative socio-economic system that exploits them in this way. The psychology of perpetual conflict prevents the human mind from ‘seeing’ beyond its limited conditioning and gaining insight into the true conditions surrounding its existence. If this true knowledge is gained, then the old socio-economic model would be abandoned for one more in keeping with the actual needs of human existence.
