Actually, the largest and longest running of slavery based on a persons color/tribe, is from when the turkic/mongolic and arabs took white slaves from areas in russia, the balkans, etc for nearly 900 years running. Most of them were from the local Slavic tribes...this is why we have the word that describes the situation...the word slave is directly related to slavic. no white priviledge there.

I put it in there, as my take on it was really what Marx saw as the ultimate state, but like all the others it is a fantasy. Ultimate state can't really be achieved.

Other books that explore similar themes are:
Thomas Moore's Utopia
George Orwell 1984
Karl Marx Communist Manifesto
Azimov I Robot series.
Not doing politics here, just saying that Marx was really trying to describe what he thought would be a perfect world/government.
There are others as well, but all have similar issues. The inherent right of mankind is free will, how much government/controll are we willing to have vs. how much freedom we will surrender.

Using the Big G word...not really what happened. A pre-industrial society came into contact with some stone age societies, that had been cut off from the rest of the population for 15k years. Technology, disease, and a culture that was unable to adapt did in every tribe. It wasn't done so purposefully as you imply.

I don't use the term former I use the word veteran marine. An ex-Marine is one that has been given a bad conduct or dishonorable discharge.

He will lay down on the blue line and not allow anyone to get by.
Actually a hockey rink is 200 feet long, they are saying he plays the full ice, up and down. That is a good statement.

I can see the tie in, you could say that the Gulf War was tied into the ending of the Cold War.
I am glad to see this type of event(s).

I was working when a friend told me a plane had flown into the WTC, I immediately thought it was terrorism, he said no way. Then when the second one hit, he looks at me and goes how did you know. Very little work was done, we spent most of the day watiching the news. I also took at look at age requirements for the Mariines as I was contemplating going back in. I was too old to by about 6 months to back on active duty.
It has changed our world, it has shaped the last decade and a half drastically.

The Marines were created by an act of the Second Continental Congress in 1775, November 10. They were not invented for the Barbary pirates. However we do remember this conflict in our song..."to the shores of Tripoli".
I spent 6 years in the Marines. I am very proud of these guys efforts.
