Interesting thoughts on tribalism at http://curiousquisling.squarespace.com/ My own thoughts on the subject are quite similar. Though I think that most large cities will remain cosmopolitan and very mixed in race, religion and political flavors. This is a good thing, as cities require a diversity of activities, actions and wants to thrive. Still, we already see self segregation along all sorts of lines in our cities. Outside of that we could break down governance to a very local tribal level, and people may form tribes around religion, race, political persuasion, lifestyle preferences, etc. We don’t necessarily have to call them tribes, either. We Native Americans, of course, already have our tribes. We are faced with holding them together as opposed to beginning new ones.
I find my interests are in both religion (ie. occult and non-traditional faith), politics, and race. I keep coming back to my core belief that tribal City-State communities would be the answer to many of our problems. Different faith communities, different counter cultures, sub cultures, race cultures, could gather together and experiment with the creating of a community, a nation, that works for them.
Our MultiCultural Tyranny is based on one tribe, one perspective being forced down everyone’s throats through media, laws, and education. And this one perspective contradicts what many Americans believe. I think an alliance could even be created between the different subcultures. Imagine White Skinheads and Black Muslims and Old Order Catholics and Scientologists all bonding together to fight and work for the City-State system. They each would like to create their own homogeneous communities where their perspective would be dominant. Tribalism is the wave of the future. But we must get beyond this current tyranny first. And that will be revolutionary, either through dramatic change or through violence or through both. I personally hope the change will be as non violent as possible. Violence is definitely overrated.
