Get Your Tribe On

If you want my tribal bona fides, I’m– in part– from a sub-sept of the Clan Cameron of Locheil. We fought FOR Bonny Prince Charlie, though not from great persuasion. Otherwise, our clan was always described as “Fiercer then fierceness itself.” Our motto? In modern parlance “You’re Dog-Meat, Pal!”, or “Sons of the Hounds, Come Here and Get Flesh!” But that’s not all.

You see, according to others, and according to modern tribalism, I’m of the male, Christian, conservative and socially conservative tribes. According to the 7th century tribal religion of Islam, I’m a Kaffir, sub-human infidel deserving only of death if I don’t convert.

Sadly, it’s the emerging modern political tribalism of the West that is the most scary. We’ve gone from an assumption of the essential humanity of all people (a classical liberal position) to the neo-fascist us-them tribalism we see on the part of Enviros, Obamaniacs, PETAphiles, Lawyerists, Bureaucracites, Fembots, Various colours of racists, HRCites, Same-Sexists, the Rich Tribe– you name it. Your worth, your humanity, your deserving a hearing or of respect or being accorded the basic dignity of humanity is not predicated on if you’re the right tribe(s). This is not a progression, but it is the fruit of political correctness, and the emphasis on group versus the whole. Our Canadian Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982) has had the same effect: the squeakiest wheels get more rights, more humanity, more laws to protect and uphold the claims of their tribe. The tyranny of lawyered-up minorities. All is politics, division, the exalting of one at the debasing and criminalizing of the other.

The HRC battles are tribal, too: the soft-fascist tribe and their government and cultural control versus everything and everyone else, but particularly Christians, Jews, social and political conservatives, libertarians, and anybody else who breaks the tribal laws which the HRCites are trying to enforce on our society. If you comply, you are human, a citizen, Canadian, and suchlike, thy decree; if not, something worse, and less. Churches, politics, universities, all are tribalized to an increasing and disastrous degree. Truth, freedom, real debate are ruled out of court. Diversity is the code-word for conformity.

Of course, this fragmenting of the culture and politics serves to break us apart, and make us easier prey for opportunistic infections like Jihadism, and the Islamist tribe.

Sorry, but you al are human, first– children of God, and deserving of the respect and dignity of that status: from here flows all else, or without it, flows our chaos and downfall.

The alternative is unfolding around us: the criminalizing and dehumanizing of political or theoretical differences, and a society that is not in any classical sense free.

Perhaps there are neighbourhoods in which all of the white people are stupid and annoying and all of the muslims are smart and witty, with no exceptions.
