What is the source of disparity in the world?

In a society that reveres left-brain logic, "I think, therefore I am" is literally believed. Without verbal cognition of one's status, you might as well be some unthinking animal – or more accurately you are considered to be some unthinking animal if you don't claim superiority for yourself over the rest of the natural world.

To this way of thinking, those with a wholistic sense of the world – who share the planet equally with animals of all sorts (including people considered socioeconomically deficient) – have an illogical sense of self and are therefore inferior beings, too.

As long as who we verbally think we should be is our operational point of view, who we are at heart is too immaterial to matter.
I wonder... what you think.
