Very interesting, I agree that often these sorts of "concessions" even when "hard fought" often ammmount to little more then "appeasement" (what I would describe as recuperation back into the system) however I don't see exactly what "cost" or perhaps better stated "detriment" this brings the state.

It is clear I think that institutions such as settler colonialism or racism or even labor allow for profit to be extracted by civilization to greater amd greater extents. However profit would still be extracted if certain parts were missing. So even though full recuperate into the system in a manner that meant no profit was extracted from a group (something that doesn't even happen to white people really) would still only slow the profit extracted by civilization, not necessarily harm it.
