1. You ARE 100% right ! - hence your point here IS True - however we must not forget that a child's 'INNOCENCE' is subject to the preserved maintenance (of their 'innocence') by THEIR guardian(s) / biological parents. Otherwise the child(ren) will fall pray to those whose only focus is to prevent their success(es) above their own.
2. As for "SUPERIORITY" - this is merely the collective expression of a child's function because of their INNOCENCE in the application to which they aspire to become and or apply. Furthermore there may well, and most probably will be many ; to which their protected INNOCENCE gives them a far greater understanding in their own applications than their biological parents / mentors before them.
3. Thus, here entereth EVOLUTION ! "POTENTIAL" has absolutely nothing to do with it !
4. POTENTIAL is the term coined by those who live in a world of WHAT IF's and COULD HAVE's. For example ; either one is an MEXI-CAN, or an MEXI-CAN'T ! ??? ! Hence SUPERIORITY = MEXI-CAN !
5. "SUPERIORITY" IS and ALWAYS will be those INNOCENT children who CAN, and WILL always perform above and beyond the Western ideology of "Strive for mediocrity".
6. INNOCENCE is also the fundamental platform for children to build upon (eg. Piaget's studies) - otherwise no comparisons of an Top Down set of principles within Perception and Cognition can ever take place nor be instrumental in building from a child's INNOCENCE ! Which again, IS SUPERIORITY !
7. INNOCENCE is merely PURITY !
