Tribes

“There’s a strange cultural phenomenon going on. It’s connected with this enormous growth of cultism, irrationality, disassociation, separateness, and isolation.” Chomsky

A tribe is viewed, developmentally or historically, as a social group existing before the development of, or outside, states. A tribe is a group of distinct people, dependent on their land for their livelihood, who are largely self-sufficient, and not integrated into the national society. wiki

Ayn Rand of all people:) Tribalism
http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/tribalism.html

The African state, formed in large part by colonial rule which actively encouraged ‘tribalism’ as a set of hierarchic chieftaincies, has often had morbid dynamics. Elites have used ancestral traditions – as created by colonial powers – to use the notion of African consensual decision-making in order to “refuse to concede to the formal representation of the interests of cultural solidarities.”
