    On a grand scale. Gated communities run by homeowners associations instead of governmental entities are segregation on the small scale.
    The impulse to segregate is not, IMHO, prompted by any particular animosity. Rather, it responds to an abiding sense of insecurity that is likely endemic -- related to some personality quirk.
    The impulse to segregate seems to have no racial, gender or ethnic base. It shows up in all aortas of places all around the globe. It may be that some people need an opposite to define themselves-- can't see themselves as boys, for example, except as not being girls.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
