While I love this article, I also have my issues with it. The issue is, “having a tribe.” I don’t do tribes. Tribes ruin society. Tribes, generate bubbles and within bubbles, information rarely gets challenged. Tribes block out new information, and what does seep in, and allows someone to perk up their ears and question oneself, often gets that person ostracized. Racially, people find their group, and their sub groups, and will sacrifice rationality for tribal acceptance. Politically, one can know hating someone based on color or nationality is becoming at all, and yet, to remain in that tribe, they will kill off that part of themselves. Tribes are all around, and so is hatred, prejudice, bigotry, and anything else negative. Those who do not behold a tribe, have the ability to see enough of what is happening. The hardest choice they will have to make it: Going back in to change as many as possible for a positive future, or staying out of the tribe, being free to think clearly, and enjoy the only life they have for themselves and not the mindset of a tribe. If anything, I would hope that your learned lesson with Pinky may aid in you seeing that. I wish the same for those reading this that doesn’t know Pinky or a Pinky.
Thank you for reading.
