39. Tribalism happens for a reason
Edited on Mon Apr-18-11 12:04 PM by Recursion
It's not that these are evil people looking for an excuse to hate others. Less security = more tribe affiliation. Anthro 101. The infamous soul-less suburbs are arguably more politically conservative than small towns, but that's not where people are leaving those different from them to die from exposure tied to a fencepost.
