Zen – Political Tribalism, Liars and Blind/Deaf Partisans


Politics are just simple tribalism.

On tribalism: It’s not much different than rooting for a sports team. The other guys are always cheating.

The referees (courts) are always full of sellout, near treasonous morons.

When your guys cheat, it’s OK though and the other guys are just whining.

We would never whine. We are just too busy fighting the good fight and dealing with the low blows to have time to whine.


Credit for the above goes to Travis Johnson whom I borrowed it from and whom appears to have borrowed it from Adam Greene, who now says that he got it from his wife, who originally wrote … unless Travis did some editing himself: “On tribalism. It’s more like rooting for a sports team. The other guys are always cheating. When your guys cheat, it’s OK and the other guys are just whining.”
