that's a good point. i don't feel like this will happen in our lifetime, or ever, as long as religion continues to be such a dividing line and while it benefits the 1% for the lower class to be divided. and for the marginalized groups, bringing them into the fold equally, not handouts that then in turn discriminate against someone else, is where it eventually needs to get, but while the elite ruling class is in power, and they always will be, it will never happen.
the movie Antz is actually a pretty great social commentary.
