COMMON FEATURES: Gen 1: CHRISTIANITY, JUDAISM, ISLAM, Gen 2: COMMUNISM, MARXISM, SOCIALISM, POSTMODERNISM, FEMINISM

There are many common features – both started out as Jewish minority movements centered around one or a few rogue rabbis, trapped inside aristocratic, European hegemonic states (Roman Empire/Russia, Germany etc), preaching egalitarian universalism for some unspecified reason (…you might speculate about pre-cognitive group interests at play…), moving on to rally women, slaves and the proles against established but perplexed and ill-equipped aristocratic regimes and narratives, resulting in the formation of highly centralized priesthood or party bureaucracies ripe with contempt for the preceding order, and a totalitarian propensity to set unchallengeable dogma about all things little and big.
