Anything that makes a distinction between me and you is a division: This means any identification, in any form: Identification with tradition, experience, nation, race, sex, status, ideology, class and group. All of these boost ego, increase violence and produce hate.
And they are all productions of thought; an attempt to seek safety is the illusory self. So, actually, they do not exist. They are the product of the mind that wants to divide, that fabricates duality and wants to escape what is.
These divisions, rooted in seeking security in identity, so are rooted in fear which is rooted in thinking, are the cause of war, struggle and poverty.
