We are all initially hardwired to fear and hate the “other,” but some of us, because of a variety of experiences (and much curiosity), evolve an intellect which allows us to rise above our primitive impulses.

So you can say that currently the US and the world are divided between the evolved and non-evolved intellects, the builders vs.the destroyers.
