Today, despite all modern sophistications, we are returning to the age of tribalism just as savage as any in the former, barbarian ages. Bitter rivalries between ideological, political, gender, racial, ethnic, national, social, economic, cultural tribes are defining our days. It is not the war of civilizations that we are facing, but the war of tribes, each determined to settle the scores of the bygone hurts – real, perceived or falsified. Nothing else matters any more except one’s tribal pride. It seems everyone is up against everyone else in this war of survival of the meanest. Listen to our reflection for this week.
