There is a macro-trend where the world that is inherently and fundementally divided into places, races, ideas and prejudices is moving to a single planet with common problems and aspirations.
While overall that seems inevitable, we are still divided and some of those divisions are growing during our lifespan. One great trend enabler is the internet and the media. Paradoxically it is enabling two opposite trends, globalization and localization/tribalization, a major social media platform for instance may concurrently provide a sense of community to the global warming interest group the same time as it provides a sense of community on the small island that I live on or a fringe interest that has only a handful of followers worldwide.

There is a misconception that our times and technologies only empowers the biggest and most global of us, however it is equally true at all scales and actually the smallest and weakest who have the greatest potential incremental advantage.
