Ephesians 6:12 says:

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

A more popular versions says something like, 'Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but powers and principalities. I heard this quoted in a sermon recently and I feel it describes how I think and feel. Its so easy to get caught up in annoying parts of relationships, or to fight because of disagreements. But most of the time these are because of small nuisances that really aren't that important. This boldly says that we need to realize that the problems in this world are with the structures of society (i.e. castes).
